Triple displays are great for productivity. For gaming, not so much.
I suppose I can agree and disagree on the gaming side. From an overall game experience perspective, it's absolutely glorious to have such a wild field of vision. It's rather immersive and in many shooter games, it's a competitive advantage to have that view. On the downside, not all games are properly optimized for it - many games put menus docked on the left/right of the screen to the point they become useless to me.
On the AMD side (at least, as of a couple years ago), it was quite easy to toggle between primary + extended displays to Eyefinity and back, which allowed the best of both worlds. On the NVIDIA side, it's near impossible to toggle without closing every... last... program.. that ever thought... about using... 3d acceleration to change the Surround mode configuration.
I used something called tidy tabs along with another piece of software that went along side. It allowed me to do basically the samething I imagine the software you are using allows. Divide a monitor into sections so Windows can snap into place without much time or thinking involved.
Display Fusion does this sort of thing. It will maintain 3 separate task bars for each screen (i.e. notepad open on left screen is represented on the left screen task bar) and will do the per-display docking even when you're on Eyefinity/Surround mode.
