2nd Monitor

Hey folks,

I play eve and have recently got my self a second account, and would lke to use my 2nd monitor to display both at the same time.

Running 1 eve session in windowed mode it takes up very little of my CPU however once i drag it onto the second monitor the CPU usage goes thru the roof.

Now i have went to the trouble of digging out an old PCI grafix card and installing it to run the second monitor in the hope that it would somehow ease the load... sadly no.

Why does placing something as graphic intensicve as a game on this second monitor (with nothing else other than the desktop on the main) have such a detrimental affect on my CPU and is there anything i cud do to ease the situation?

thanks for your time
