    So I have two monitors hooked upto my graphic card.
    If i split that by hooking up the secondary monitor on the onboard video, would I see improvements on my games? Does it slow it down or doesnt change anything?

    Most motherboards disable the onboard video if you install a PCIe or AGP video card. Even if it worked, that onboard video is almost guaranteed to suck ass compared to your video card unless your onboard video is brand new and your video card is a 10 year old PCI card.

    Well I figured that if this worked, I'd have 256MB video for web/IM and my x1600 for gaming. :wiggle:

    um, why? CRTs are better for gaming, and LCDs are better on your eyes for surfing.
