no way ! thats crazzy !

so how do you go about controlling whether the display is Tabbed or just one BIG screen ??

I would think that since its so graphicly demanding...it would be better to just use an older computer for music

you set up windows to use a split screen or seperate desktops. it's pretty easy.

do you guys just plug the music monitor into your integrated video card ??

I would think plugging an extra monitor into your good video card would DRASTICLY reduce performance on the other one !

w/e dude (you were the one who started this little argument) all i did was put my input. then you said you need 2 monitors, "so if you already have decided you need 2 monitors then why post" is what i said (and i was not saying it sarcastically or rudely) then you started the argument. But I'm done with this thread.
