Default Dual monitor performance

I have a Quadro 1700 on my work computer running dual monitors. Will the performance in sketchup or any related programs be slower because of the dual monitor support? I don't stretch the program across the screens.

No, it takes hardly any graphics power to run dual screen unless you are running crazy resolutions, or you have intense graphic apps running on both screens. If you have dual screens, and watch tv on one, and then a CAD program or a game on the other, it shouldn't slow down the game much or the CAD program too much either.
