well, its just the standard ati driver. why wouldnt the monitor be compatible??

the ~80 monitor is the one i game on, and the fps is as it should be for my graphics card while in game. i think it is only ati tool that does it.

WOAH! 80fps on one monitor and 200fps on the other? do you use the 200 monitor for your games now? you might want to try it out for the heck of it.

I might try switching my monitors to see if there's a difference because thats crazy!
