I am getting ready to rebuild my system, I have been running 3 25" monitors on an HD 5770, works great. But I dual boot Win XP/32 and W7/64. I boot to XP to do e-mail, browse ect... and I boot to W7 to use the 3 eyefinity setup. I only do a flight sim or other games maybe 10% of the time, and would like to install W7 only, but would like to change the display from 3 to 1 on the fly. Anyone done this yet?

Pardon the stupid question, but why use XP at all? Browsing and email can be done on Win7 as well.
When W7 is setup using Eyefinity for 3 monitors, it always boots to 3 monitors, I guess it would be possible to turn off #2 and #3 and throw the browser or email app onto #1, (prior to turning the other 2 off) but it would be nice to have a "hot key" or someway to toggle it to one only, preferably #1 with a "Full Desktop" there, not 2/3 rd's of the desktop on #2 and #3...
I still totally don't understand. Why do you want three of the monitors off? Thats the point of Eyefinity, to have lots of desktop space. Have you ever used more then one monitor? It's a really nice thing to have.
