Is Nvidia dual monitors a poor cousin to Windows 7 dual monitors?..

Having just upgraded from XP using the Nvidia dual monitor desktops for years, I was surprised to find Windows 7 has this feature in-built with the added bonus of slideshow desktop images C00L!
So beyond Windows 7 eye candy which is better, Does it come down to games running faster under the Nvidia dual desktops, what is the general preference here?

afaik, there is no real performance difference, as all stuff is handled by the nvidia driver anyway.

And of course the more monitors the higher performance hit as there is more screen surface to work on (the same as increasing resolution).

Btw, the main pityfall of the multiple monitors is that the taskbar is only in the primary monitor, but there are a ton of good third party programs that can handle this, like Actual Multiple Monitors.

I bought Display Fusion after trying it for a very short time, for all my display configuration needs, $35 for lifetime (forever free updates) Home (all PC's you own) license.

Try the trial...

I am manipulating 3 monitors with it, 3 separate Task Bars and only shows on the bar what is running on THAT monitor, plus a normal task tray.
