I have a Gigabyte P35-DS3R with an 8800GT. I recently bought a 6200 256 Mb PCI video card so I can run a third monitor. The card is installed in the first PCI slot, with an Audigy 2 in the second PCI slot and 1 monitor connected. I've got the latest Forceware drivers (196.21) installed on Win7 64 bit. Games run great on my main monitor and 8800GT.

The problem is in windows when the screensaver (3D) is activated.. there's a long delay and the screensaver doesn't appear.

Have you tried using Multiple Display Performance Mode or Compatability Mode in the NVIDIA Control Panel under 3D Settings? It's under Multi-Display/mixed-GPU Acceleration.

yup tried that and still same result.

I've installed GPUz and noticed the problem occurs when memory used reaches 100mb on the 6200LE card (it has 256 megs).. wierd??
