Is it possible to do that in Vista for desktop and in games w/ 8800 gts 640M? I remember in XP we have the option to use LCD1 + LCD2 in many different ways left/right up/down and vice versa. Also higher resolution w/ panning, etc. Much thanks.

No unless the game supports multiple monitors.

The OS seems to be able to treat the two lcds as one integrate desktop space, but short of combining the two as one lcd w/ twice the resolution. In older OS such as Win98 or XP even though if the native LCD is only 800x600, we can change to a higher res 1024x but w/ panning/scroll and in games will treat the monitor as 1024x. Anyone know if it possible or what can be done to achieve that? Much thanks.

You'd need something like this:
