I am interested in the effects (positive or otherwise) of adding a second PCIE card to render video on my secondary monitor. This is the setup: 24" on 8800GTS 320 MB (overclocked to 625/860) @1920 x 1200 22" on 8600GT 256 MB (underclocked to 420/400) @1680 x 1050 I game on the 24" (boring strategy games like EUIII), while watching star trek on the 22". With the current setup the GTS runs COD4 at top settings and Crysis DX10 on cheap v high perfectly. Everything rendered at native resolution. I noticed the fact that both the latest stable and beta 174.74 drivers would not allow proper dual monitor setup in the nvidia control panel - extending the desktop in vista enables functionality but theres something fishy going on: Everest has the same problem (as does RivaTuner 2.08): Why is the monitor register doubled up like that? Is there a benefit in running the second monitor off a second card? Is the quality of video on the VW222 affected because it is on a VGA cable? Would it be any better if I was to use a transformer? Thanks guys... Im new to the whole two monitor things, but it is so cool I want to learn more about the rendering dividionbetween cards and so on.
