I was suggesting that you Quadro card if nview is important.
For more info browse some of the other FAQs on the nvidia site. One says that Nvidia intentionally disabled nview for gforce cards with Vista or Windows 7, and why they did so. "Disable" apparently means driver package does not install nview automatically, rather than blocks from a manual install.
The general reason why nview features don't work with gforce cards is probably that Nvidia didn't test or try to make them work on non-supported cards.

Even with a quadro card, nview in Windows 7 doesn't have the same multiple display options it has in XP. The nview setup in Windows 7 is spanned or not spanned, which means exactly the same thing as extended or not extended in windows-speak. This is likely a windows 7 constraint since Windows 7 supports multiple displays "natively", even with no nvidia drivers installed. Functionally I don't see a difference between spanned / extended in Windows 7 compared to the "dual view" mode I used in XP.
Nview with Quadro in Windows 7 does support hot keys, multiple desktops, nview right click menus, menu bars icons, etc.
Note my card is a "mid-level" quadro that supports only two displays at once. Some high end quadro cards support as many as four. I don't know what nview can do with them.
