Hello,

Using extended desktops through Windows Display properties does it force the setting on Ati Catalyst also? Or should i enable it through the catalyst menu? currently i have primary display my 19" wide pc monitor when working in windows and when i want to launch a game i go to display properties of windows and set primary display the TV with extend desktop checked. am i doing this the right way for best performance in games? the resolution of my pc monitor is 1440x900 and the TV is 1920x1080.

In CCC, make the TV your primary display then dissable the monitor.
That is how I do it, works great [:jaydeejohn:5]

Booooyahhhh, thanks mate. I was thinking of installing Vista for that, because they have it as an option in Display properties
(Mirrored, Extended, External display only).
