ok my pc stats are 2.67ghz p4, 1gig 2700 ram, ati radeon x700, and i have 2 hp l1908w monitors, when i hooked up the dual screens earlyer i had 3 problems, 1. fire fox wouldn't opne on primary screen it only opened on other screen, 2. i had lag on videos that i played on my secondary monitor but it could had been hardware acceleration bot being on full, already unplugged monitor, and 3. while playing a game i got terrible pc performance and had tons of monitor probs, i even set it back to 1 monitor and still probs, only fix was to unplug 2nd monitor. so does this sound like a issue with my pc specs or is it some kind of setting that needs fixing?

First off, dual screen takes more out of your video card, obviously.

What resolution were yourunning your dual monitors on? That's most likely causing the performance issue.

The problem was most likley the resolution .. if your ever gonna try to duel screen again i suggest you check out online the suggested resolution for your specs and screen size (yes screen size dose come into effect in some cases) anyways. but good luck with the new parts
