    I have one vga and one dvi display hooked up to my PM g5 dual core 2.3. It has an Nvidia geforce 6600, with two dvi ports. Why won't it let me create an extended desktop? My only options are to move windows to the other screen in spaces or to mirror my desktop.

    If you can move windows between displays at all, it's extended. Maybe you have your arrangement switched in system prefs.

    Sorry guys I'm the biggest idiot...

    I was trying to move things to the left, but in the display preferences the second display is set up to the right of the primary. I physically set the second the left of the primary, and I just accidentally moved a window to the right, and it went onto the second screen. The solution was to move the preference location of the second monitor to the left of the primary in display preferences...

    I am so stupid hahahaha
