I thought I'd make a new thread about this as much of the info is back there in the long one.
Well, I finally got my VGA dummy load plug today, what with Paypal's eCheck, all the Christmas mail and me being very rural. Took me about 2 minutes to screw the dummy plug onto the VGA adapter and screw that into the card, went into nVidia's Control Panel, checked the second monitor, got the 'New Hardware Found' da-bump sound and just double-clicked on the premade shortcut that I had and away I went!
That reminds me, I'll have to write a dual GPU guide now, it's not that hard.
I mean both the guide and getting it set up.
Mind you, a VGA dummy load is not needed when one has a two monitor setup, it's just needed to fool the card that there is a monitor hooked up and for just a few bucks too. BTW, the guy sent me two plugs so anyone that needs one can just PM me, first come and first served and free.
I haven't OC'd the second card yet, I'll wait until I check the temps but it's going just great now @ 4K PPD! I should be getting 10.4K PPD now (as long as I don't get an a1 core on the SMP, basically double the time for the same points as opposed to the a2 core) and I still have quite a bit of headroom for a second SMP in VMWare, I just need to get some more RAM.
Thanks to Treihydral for trying to get my second card going with a KVM switch as he has successfully done with his setup, I was just missing the DVI plug for the monitor I believe.
My VMWare SMP folding (~1.9K PPD) doesn't show in the pic as I'm still struggling with that part of FahMon but here's the rest:
