My System Specs

Default Multiple monitors on Nvidia 4xx/5xx cards?

Anyone here running multiple monitor set-ups with the fermi cards?
I've read time and time again that a multi-monitor setup with these cards leads to bad temps since the card is always running at "max clocks" instead of staging itself down for cooler 2D operation.

Is this the case with BOTH 4xx and 5xx cards?

Just curious as I don't want to spend the money for a 2nd monitor and find that my temps end up going through the roof. Would rather spend that cash on a new single bigger monitor if it's too much of an issue.

Usage reasons: Movie/TV watching while playing games/browsing/whatever.
