    I have a Mac Pro with OSX 10.6.2 and three displays (w/ 3 video cards).

    Every time I launch any game, the game takes over all three screens (two go black) and my computer becomes dedicated to the game. I would like to run the game within a window and put it on one screen and multitask other applications at the same time on other screens. Is this even possible & how? Thank you.

    That only works if the game offers a "windowed mode", so check the settings of your game.

    Depends on the game. Some don't have dual monitor support, others have windowed modes, others play nice with almost every configuration.
