Okay, I just bout a 22" Samsung to go with my 19" BenQ The problem is the 22 inch is a wide screen at 1680x1050 and the 19" is 1280x1024. Now I know that they wont match up but I cant seem to figure out how to change the resolutions independaly. My friend has ATI Catalysts and he can do it but I cant find anything on it for my Nvida card (7950GT). Has anyone done this?

I used to have an external monitor hooked up to my laptop, my laptops screen was set to 1024x768 & I had the other monitor going from 800x600 to 1600x1200 to see how webpages looked on different resolutions.
I never actually uninstalled the other monitor, so I can still right-click my desktop, select properties, then settings & see the two squares labeled #1 & #2, which I can click & adjust res/color settings for.

I was just using the plain onboard video that came in my laptop & the normal Windows display properties, I never liked messing with the stuff Intel had bundled with the laptop & never used it.

Thats what I do on my laptop too, but my desktop doesnt have that feature. I would of thought that a card like the one I have would be able to do something as simple as that (at least I think its a rather simple thing to do)
