Xinerama with Nvidia 6600GT (dual DVI card)
Hello! Has anyone used the NVIDIA 6600 card in a dual monitor setup? I am referring to the use of the two DVI ports off the back of the card.

I am considering the BGF 6600GT for Xinerama (one big desktop mode) to power my two Dell 19" LCDs.

Thank you for your feedback,

I have a 5200 that I've used in both xinerama and twinview configurations, it would work the same way for a 6600, just better.

twinview works better for opengl stuff across both screens, but some things get a little strange. with xinerama you can only display opengl apps on one screen, I read in some release notes that they've worked on this, but I haven't tried it.
