Default Dual video cards, second video card very slow

I've got a dual video card machine (Radeon 9600 AGP, Radeon 9200SE PCI), designed for a quad monitor setup, although it's only running dual monitors (VGA-OUT on both cards).

Video performance for the Radeon 9600 is fine, but the Radeon 9200SE is dog slow. Standard Windows operations such as maximizing, minimizing, and restoring a window have a noticable screen draw, whereas the 9600 is instantaneous with such operations. Things like changing tabs in Firefox also bog down on the 9200SE.

Any help is appreciated.

zopheus is still being judged by the masses


I am having a similar issue.

AGP Radeon 9800 Pro
PCI Radeon 9250

The second card / monitor seems to be rendering in software mode not hardware. This is affecting normal scrolling in applications as well as gaming. Anyone have any suggestions?

I do have UltraMon installed BTW

Thanks for any help.
