Jitter problems

    hello list.
    i notice that most of the posts to this forum are Max/MSP related and few people post questions about jitter. But I'm having a little problem and I'm hoping someone out there can help me. It may be a hardware issue, but i'm hoping someone out there might have some insight. anything helps. here it goes.
    I'm Running Max 4.57 and Jitter 1.5. on a single chip 1.6gHz G5. I just installed a new Raedon video card and was trying to output to multiple screens (using both the Raedon and the GeForce that comes with the G5). It worked fine untill I tried to output to 3 displays at once. Since then, processing of some of the patches I made have slowed down significantly, making them pretty much useless. Now I'm using only 1 card (the Raedon) and just outputting to 2 displays, but the problem persists. I'm only getting about 3fps, and I was getting at least 20fps prior to this incident. I've rebooted, reset, re-everything other than wipe the hard drive and start over again. I'm hoping there's another option out there.
    Can anyone help?
    thanks a lot.
    owen.
