Not sure if this a 8800GTX issue, but I was wondering if you could help me.

I brought my new 24" TFT the other night and now sits next to my other one.

Im just wondering if it is possible for me to play DVD on one screen and Games on the other.

Atm when I do it, the DVD view goes black.

heh easiest thing to do would be to have another box for playing DVD's, and a KVM switch for swapping the 2nd monitor to DVD while playing games. Or if the monitor has multiple inputs, use RCA or HDMI out on a DVD player and use the monitor's input selector to swap to the 2nd source while gaming. It's not sexy, but oh well.

ATI has proper settings for multiple monitors ,Shame they dont make a decent graphics card.
