Video Card Question

If I have dual monitors. Does it make any difference in having 2 video cards vs 1. I have had the nvidia 8600gts 512 mb for years but i think it's about to bite it. Screen is flashing like I just changed my resolution or something. And my taskbar changed colors for about 5 minutes and went back to normal. This is an on going issue with my pc freezing up a few weeks ago. The freezing up stopped but weird things happen here and there. Damn Gremlins!!!

Don made me remove my sig

No most card's are dual head these day's so you don't need 2 card's. ATI is a good one.

I looked into the performance hit of dual monitors several years back, and the general consesus was that any impact is negligable.
