The center of your screen would be split between the two monitors! And I personally have never seen monitors without borders.... how does this work!?!?!?!?!
System Shock (yes, the original) had a main character who could be enhanced by inserting certain devices. One of those devices opened up a small window on the screen and rendered a view of what was behind you. Great to have in order to avoid having enemies sneaking up on you from the back. I can imaging putting that view on a separate monitor instead of in a window.

A team-game, such as Team Fortress, could conceivably add command/hq information on a second screen. And so on and so forth.

So I guess it depends on the shooter if and for what that extra monitor(s) can be used.
