Windows 7: How do I use two monitors with two video cards?

How do I use two monitors with two video cards?

OS: Windows 7 64-bit
GPU 1: AMD Radeon 6900 series
GPU 2: AMD Radeon 7800 series
Monitors both by Asus

I'm aware you can run two monitors with a single video card. I have two unlike GPU's in my computer and I'm trying to use the second to hook up another Asus screen. I have the proper cords (I believe it's called DVI). When I hook up the monitor to the second card and enable multiple displays in control panel, both screens simply display my desktop background on both screens. I can get the mouse to move between the screens but there is nothing to click. Can someone give me a bit of help?
