Hello, I have a 780g chipset mobo (Gigabyte GA-MA785gUD-SH). I've got my tv hooked up to it via hdmi connection and a regular monitor via VGA. I'd like to be able to surf the net while letting my wife watch you tube vidoes on the tv. Can I do this? It doesn't seem easy with what I've got, so I thought of buying another ATI 5670 (eyefinity) card to be able to do this (and to get better results in gaming!!) Do I really need to do this however? Also, will the new card allow me to run two separate video signals from my pc, or can i utilize the on-board vga connection while utilizing the new card's hdmi? Not sure how all this will work! Thanks for any suggestions!!

just use the 'extended desktop' mode rather than clone mode and open the vids in the tv section. so no eyefinity or anything else funky stuff needed

I have the same mobo with monitor and TV both on onboard, VGA and HDMI. Make extended setting in CCC display options. Right click on displays for options. You also may need to set the audio out in Windows control center to HDMI for the TV.
