I have tried running a dual display recently as I play EVE Online a lot and want to do other stuff while it is going. I know that the game is fairly graphic intensive but i would have thought that with the specs of my PC it would not cause a problem but as soon as I enable the second monitor everything just slows to a snails pace. The CPU runs at 100% in the task manager and as soon as I turn it off the game runs fine, and likewise, if I end the game the dual display runs fine.
Is it a case of I've got to live with it or buy a bigger PC? I really thought it this should be enough though???

Any advice would be highly appreciated!!!

Hello! Welcome to TechSpot

Huh, can I suggest a copy of Everest Homeit's free, it's difficult to make out your sys info.
I think you may be ram starved, otherwise you system should handle this better.
G'Luck and Post back
