Dual View + Gaming, possible or dream? (Nvidia 6600GT)
 
Hello, a couple of questions.

First, and the main one, is it possible to use my two displays in a way where I could play a game on one of them and KEEP working on windows on the other screen simultaneously (so far the only thing I can do is click the other display and my game is minimized) this function should be very useful for games like WoW (World of Warcraft)

Second, I cannot get a movie to display properly on both screens when I go to Span View, it always shows just the bigger part of the movie on one side of the screen (say a third of the movie is on my main screen and two thirds are on my second screen I only see the two thirds) if I maximize it I see the half on the main display.

1) run your game in windowed mode, thats the best solution there is ATM.

2) I dont really understand this question, please restate.

Run WoW in windowed mode with the Maximized checkbox on - it looks exactly like full screen but you can still go over and use the other monitor for checking Thott/Allakahzam, Vent etc...

Been doing this for years, it's the best implementation I have ever seen.

Supreme Commander also has a mode that puts the game amp on your secondary monitor.
