    For all you hardware gurus out there, why does my device manager show 2 video cards, ATI X800XT PE and ATI X800XT PE Secondary? Futher , what do I do about this? I'm kind of afraid of deleting one because I don't know which one the machine is using and, it the secondary one using up system resources?

    Don't do anything. :) If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    That's normal. All ATi cards show up as 2 in device manager, leave them.

    its just listing 2 because the card supports dual monitors. my 6800gt dont do it but my 9800pro did. dont worry bout it though
