Dual video card/monitor setup
Got a new XPS last week with dual 7900 GS cards and two 20" widescreen monitors. Only one monitor works out of the box and the other is disabled due to the way Dell configures these before they ship them. The documentation is a little sketchy on how to activate the second monitor, but I would think I just go to the diaply properties, select the "2" monitor and then click the little box that allows you to extend the display to the second monitor. I have done this and it works fine. Somewhere in the documentation it also says that you have to disable the SLI properties to allow the GPUs to work independently. Is that necessary?
