    I suppose you could just leave it set to display on both monitors all the time.

    When I do play games on my TV I always let it display on both, but I set it back to just the monitor when I'm done.

    I have no idea how much more stress this puts on the Video Card but I've never noticed any problem.

    I don't know if it adds any stress at all when the Dvi on the TV isn't set to receive the signal, the computer is aware of this so maybe it makes no difference at all when the TV isn't set to Dvi, but I really don't know.
