3D issues with Athlon X2, x64, 6600LE, and dual monitors

    Two development workstations at my company show the same symptoms.
    They are configured as follows:

    Windows XP x64 Edition
    Athlon X2 3800+
    ABIT AN8 (nForce4 Ultra) motherboard
    Albatron 6600LE 256MB PCIe video card
    1x hp pavilion f1903 LCD monitor on DVI-D
    1x Samsung Syncmaster 955DF CRT monitor on VGA
    84.21 WHQL ForceWare driver
    Running in DualView mode

    Often times the display stutters when in accelerated mode, by which I
    mean objects will move forward, then backward, then forward again
    quickly. It's easily noticeable in the OpenGL screensavers included in
    Windows. It also affects transition effects in Picasa.

    I suspect it may be a bug in the x64 driver since none of our users
    with 32-bit XP have complained about the problem.

    Also, if 4x AA + 8x AF is turned on in the video driver, running any of
    the built-in OpenGL screen savers will instantly hard-lock the PC. But
    disabling one monitor seems to circumvent that problem.

    Are there any known issues with dual monitors on dual-core X64 systems?
    Do I perhaps have a pair of bad Albatron video cards?

    Update: I tried trading the Albatron 6600LE with a Gigabyte 6600 from
    another PC. The problem persists. But with a Biostar 6500, it worked
    (slowly).

    I doubt all three 6600 cards are bad. I'm more inclined to think this
    is a bug in the x64 NV43 driver. That or a compatiblity problem with
    the ABIT AN8 motherboard.
