Default Triple Header Layout - GF6200 GFFX5200

Trying to wrap my head around configuring a triple head setup. I am trying to configure this on a Geforce 6200 AGP and a GeForce FX 5200 PCI. I would like to run only my central LCD off of the 6200 and the two flanking CRTs off the 5200. I was able to get this running with Xinerama, but X was using about 30% of the CPU on my system (which is a lot for a P4 3Ghz in my opinion). This made the system lose an unacceptable amount of responsiveness. I am curious if there is a way to configure the below diagram with Twin View to speed things up.



I am not sure how you would tell X to use following layout with Twin View enabled. Heck, I am not even sure it is possible. However, I do welcome any comments/assistance which could be rendered *rimshot*. Thanks!

Are there no thoughts on how to possibly configure this? Is there further information I could provide which would assist? Thanks.

Try this:
nvidia-xconfig -a --twinview --xinerama --separate-x-screens

If you need further asisstance, please generate and post an nvidia-bug-report.log.

Thanks,
