Default Second vid card extremely slow

I have a second video card just to run an extra monitor on my system. It's a POS since it's only a Geforce 6200 but I only need it to run windows explorer, firefox or M$ Office etc.. It did it's job just fine until I updated to Win7 and now it is as clunky as hell. I'm just kind of wondering why? A DirectX thing maybe?

If it is a hardware issue what's the lowest vid card I can get away with? Needs to be nvidia BTW to play nice with my GTX 280 driver wise.
