I decided to try out how well the dual display is with the 6800s but I ran into a problem. I want to be able to play a game fullscreen on one display and have my desktop on the other display, so I can easily have AIM/Website loaded while playing a game. The only problem is that cloned and span don't seem to work like that at default settings, is there anyway to change it so I can do this? I want to do it so I don't have to worry about keeping my laptop on when its only needed for AIM/looking stuff up. Any help would be appreciated!

Go to the nView Display Mode tab and install the Dualview driver. This will give you the extended destop and none of that spanned desktop crap. :)

oh and btw, once you enable desktop extending.. Go to the Performance & Quality Settings tabs, check show advanced settings and set the hardware slider to Single-display mode. This will solve a lot of problems w/ OpenGL games
