OK, will try that. Are you sure that the "3840 1920" should not read "3840
1200" as my scvreens are 1920(x2)x1200?

3840x1200 is enough, if you don't want to rotate your screens, yes. I didn't
know the resolutions of your monitors and your requirements.

No, I mean one big screen with two monitors.

Not what I am realy after, but will test anyway.

What you would need for your setup is using the proprietary NVIDIA driver

sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia -b NVidia_DualHead

On the wiki is says that the -m should not be needed but will try and
report back.

You need it, unless you use the official openSUSE RPMs, which simply don't
exist yet for 11.2 for known reasons (kBABI changes all the time during
