It should work fine with your current setup. What problems are you having?

Just as a test, I hooked up 3 very different LCD monitors to my GTX 680 to see how finicky 2D surround was. I had a very old Samsung 1280x1024 monitor, a few years old 1200p monitor and my 120hz 1080p monitor. Surround worked without a hitch, other than all monitors using 1280x1024 for their resolution, but that was expected.

According to Nvidia's site, the only requirement is 3 digital connections. I used 2 DVI connections and an HDMI connection.

You might have to try each monitor separate to make sure they are all correctly being read as 1080p. It might be a monitor driver issue.

I have them plugged in via a DVI, DVI to HDMI and a HDMI.
They all support 1080p though..

I realize they may all support 1080p, but if windows doesn't recognize them at 1080p due to monitor drivers or something of the sort, it will go with the smaller resolution.

Right click the desktop and click "screen resolution" and make sure each monitor is showing its resolution as 1080p and set as 1080p.

Can you set them all to 1080p using the standard Windows screen resolution settings window?

would it be because the HDMI PC option doesnt support 1920x1080, only 1440x900, heres a comparison i made in photoshop quickly to demonstrate

Most definitely, though it is odd that it won't support 1080p in HDMI, unless that's an old monitor and has an outdated HDMI version that doesn't support 1080p. That or it could be the adapter limitation. You might want to try it on a different monitor and see if things change.

Neither VGA adapter will work. The GTX 680 requires all digital connections for 2D surround, according to their website. VGA is analog, even with an adapter.

I hope it works. I am not 100% sure if it'll be considered analog or digital as far as the card is concerned, but it is great to see we found what was wrong.
