OK, well I know I'm gonna sound like an idiot for this especially after posting on here for help.
However.... The problem has been fixed. After A few more tries of installing them and tweaking nouveau and nvidia drivers 96xx, I had a brain-flash and copied some of the information that nvidia's installation allows you to make from nvidia-settings (creates a xorg.conf).
I copied as much information as I could that wasn't nvidia specific from it and entered that into my 10-monitors.conf in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ . Restarted X with the command:
killall -USR1 /usr/bin/X
and voila! It works... Not sure which section it was but... meh.... and it seems to work fine for the monitor too... (Yes, I made sure that nothing looked dangerous for my monitor, its an old dinosaur [it'll probably outlive me].
