I change buffer to 512 and cpu was around 20%. Insight 1 was on one screen almost at full size. So it looks like those oldish Apple cinema displays are hogs for cpu.
HOW can a monitor be a CPU HOG? The only thing that comes to mind, is their firewire/and or/usb hub....

Anyway, good for you that it's working better...
