This is one issue that will pop up when you have both the onboard and add-in video card enabled.

2 screens ftw :)
That depends on the motherboard. Older onboard GFX (like your 6100 chipset) didn't play nice with dedicated GFX. Newer AMD chipset boards were designed specifically to run both.

How do you know if the board can run the 2 monitors?

I have both the ECS and this Gigabyte board here. My goal is to watch hd hockey from the internet on television AND have both a tv and a monitor working at the same time.

My 8100 does onboard+88gt but as soon as I add a pci (tv out) everything goes to hell.
