The only option you really have is to check the monitor settings and see if you can rotate it on the monitor hardware rather than the windows OS, but that could end up screwing up the windows orientation.
The monitor can't do anything fancy like that unfortunately :/
Though I did always wonder why is it that when a monitor comes with a rotating stand, why doesn't the stand connect via USB or something and let Windows know when you rotate it? Tablet PCs do it, there's no reason desktop monitors can't. And it would be nice.
Do you know if the GTX680 supports output using DVI+DVI+HDMI simultanously? If so maybe I can try getting a hold of a mini HDMI cable and connecting a side monitor there, freeing up a DVI port for the 30".
