I have a geforce 9600gt and i'm using dual monitor. Crt as primary and lcd as secondary. Games generaly start always on the primary (crt) but there are some games i would like them to play on the secondary.

Is it possible to pick which monitor a game going to play ?

Some games have config files , that can have a line of code that can use the non primary monitor.

Switch wich way the DVI cables go from the Moniters to the vid card, and you will be running CRT as secondary, and LCD as primary, and that will fix your prolbklems.

Hm, not really. What i meant was:

-Bioshock 2 to run on the LCD;
-Unreal Tournament to run on the CRT:

I want to pick which game is going to run on each monitor. Is this possible ?

Besides editing the config of the program, the only way I see you running the game on the monitor of your choice is:
1. To use windowed mode and drag it there.
2. Change your primary monitor in properties, settings.

Maybe there are other option but those are the two I could come up with. Tell me if anything previously told or mine work. Good luck!

Yeah I was gonna say Grab Ultramon. It lets you set what program opens in what window.
