Default ATI 6970 and Multi Display Gaming Issues.....

I have been running 3 monitors on my 6970 IceQ-X with no problems. I am just using the Windows Extended Desktop display. For some games, mostly Eve Online I am having an issue with dropped FPS in my "Main Display". My monitor #2 gets a nice solid 60fps and never drops below 57fps while my #1 display always drops to 34-40fps when in game.

I've read that windows diverts the 3D acceleration to the Main display only, but in this case it seems to divert the display to #2 instead.

I'd like to get the smoother Game window on the Display that sits in the middle of the three, and moving the Monitors doesnt solve the issue as then I dont have my Main display in the middle!

Bottom line....whichever display I make my "Main" seems to get the fps hit, and that doesnt seem right to me.

Any help would be appreciated! thanks!
