    I'm thinking of adding a second monitor and instead of using the second DVI port on my 8800GT I'd like to just add an ATI 2600XT and plug the second monitor into that, saving extra strain on the 8800GT.

    My questions are:
    1) Do the 8800GT and 2600XT play nice together in one box?
    2) Can an application grab just one monitor without using windowed mode? (simple e.g. WoW running full screen on the 8800GT and the desktop showing on the 2600XT)

    Thanks in advance :D

    1) Yes. They coexist loverly.
    2) Yes... I assume. Why not?

    I won't have these problems. I'm just getting two 8800 GT. Clears that right up...:D
