For now I'm leaning toward disabling twinview since running opengl apps on my secondary display (my DFP) isn't a priority.

To conclude, I've attached copies of the two xorg.cfg files. One has twinview enabled, the other doesn't. Each yield a similar dual-head setup (both heads @ 1280x1024) using the new (gf6600) hardware.

As usual comments, feedback, etc. is appreciated!
