This is less of a problem, and more of a special configuration question.
My current setup-
Windows 7 Ultimate
Radeon 6850- (Windows "main" display) hdmi 1080p TV
Radeon 6450- 1440x900 monitor, + 1280x1024 monitor (extended displays)
So basically, the idea is play my games on the nice card, run videos and other such things on the other 2 screens (attached to the 6450). Not that complicated right?
Here's the problem: It appears I can only use 1 card for graphics acceleration outbound to all 3 screens. Even if the flash video is on an off-screen, it's the 6850 doing all the work, and than the image is just bussed through the 6450 while the 6450 handles no acceleration at all.
This is causing me problems because I use up most of the 6850 capacity when I'm gaming, and playing a flash(youtube) video on the other screen causes the game framerate to spike (as the flash video renders frames in bursts). Makes gaming very uncomfortable.
So the question is, is there any way I could configure my system to actually use the 6450 for additional hardware acceleration, or is it going to have to be nothing but a pricy set of monitor ports?
