It's an overscan thing...
Rumor is, current nvidia drivers support adjusting overscan. I haven't
tried it (if it's fixed, don't break it) so I dunno.
iirc, the overscan is so bad can't even see the whole nvidia-settings
GUI to play with it on the frontend.
I work around it by running myth in a window on the frontend. Tedious to
get it to fit right since the screen wizard never worked for me.
Then I vnc into the frontend to do whatever.
The screen fits the vnc window and menu bars are accessible.
