    Hey guys i just setup my system with a new second video card. it is NOT SLI it's just a second card that i got to run my HDTV, in the same computer. however i am having trouble getting it to work the way i want. i want windows to show my full desktop(start menu, ect...) on both monitors, is this possible in vista. and my thinking was that i wont see a performance hit when they both are running, because the HDTV is run by a seperate card. im using a standard computer VGA connection for the HDTV so there is nothing really funky there, and i have used it before as my primary monitor with GREAT SUCCESS!!!!(i love Borat).

    ANY IDEAS OR TIPS TO MAKE THIS MORE FUN AND WORK BETTER?? THANKS!!:respect:

    EDIT: P.S. My system config is to the right, and the new card is a 256mb 7300gs(should be enough for a 1366x768 monitor, right?)

    Sorry, don't know.

    Ultramon has Smart Taskbar which will enable a taskbar on each monitor, but won't enable a second start button.
