However, multi-monitor support is very lacking. To get my dual-monitor setup working as I wanted it, I had to download quadro drivers and use a crack to get nview working, and on top of that, install multi-monitor to get taskbar spanning.
For OC'ing I use EVGA Precision X - I do like the real time metrics and fan controls. Despite all my best efforts, I was never able to to get the OC controls to show up for my Sapphire 5770 card in CCC, so I didn't feel the drawback with nvidia's lack of OC tools in the drivers.
With the proliferation of multi monitor setups at home and for gaming, I think nvidia needs to work harder on multi-monitor tweaks and tools. Since I replaced my radeon before adding the second monitor, I can't attest to AMD's recent efforts in this department.

Sounds like you need to switch to Windows 8!Voldenuit wrote:auxy wrote:What the heck are you trying to do? I run multi-monitor on an Nvidia GPU at home; have for years, never had any problems!
I want taskbar spanning across both displays. nview on my work laptop with quadro lets me do this, but even with nview working thru a hack on my geforce, the option is greyed out on non-professional cards. So I use dual monitor.exe to replicate the taskbar (similar to multimon from the xp days). Meanwhile, I have nview so I can set up a custom task switch out of windowed fullscreen modes for games that lock the mouse cursor from moving onto the second display (useful for browsing on secondary display while playing).
