    I have only built one computer and it was run with an ATI card and using catalyst, I was able to control the placement of dual monitors with ease. I just upgraded to an Nvidia card and found it to be impossible to put the second monitor to the left of the primary monitor, this is important for my setup. After some searching I found Ultramon, which allows me to do this. Right now I am using it in trial mode. The trial will end some day soon. Are there free options to place my monitor where I want it?

    There is a drag and drop type of interface with the nvidia control panel... assuming you have it all installed properly.

    I am using the same setup but with a matrox card. I found that if you right click on the screen and go to display properties, you can simply drag display 1 to the right of display 2 .

    Thanks K&M that was the trick. I had been searching for that tab in XP that allowed me to move the screens. The ATI had this feature covered within catalyst. I have yet to be able to find this in the Nvidia control panel. It may be that after 2 years I am just know my way around catalyst, but it just seems the Nvidia control panel is weaker than ATI's.
