Hi Allen,

Thanks for your input.  All I want to do is clone the displays, both at
720p and have the same thing displayed on both monitors.  I have heard
that Twinview sucks performance-wise.  Is it possible to clone the
display not using Twinview?

I'm pretty sure I'm not the Marc Christensen two levels removed from you
