Yeah so I use dual monitors.. dunno how I lived without two of them it makes my life alot easier, anyways a though occurred to me does using dual monitors use up any video memory that games crucially need or what I mean.. I would think so I wanna know so if I decide to start up a game if I should disable the second monitor to conserve memory. Anyone know??

It depends on what your doing on the second monitor.If its graphix intensive then yes you should but if its just at idle I dont think it will hurt to just leave it.

What kind of video card is it?
