I have my onboard adapter disable and its not in use, however, why in almost every system viewer program, it says, there are 2 video cards being used?

Also, in certain games where you have to choose your video card, it says:

ATI Display// etc, and Primary Display.

Which one should i use and why is it showing that?

It only seems to happen in ATI cards, seriously.

Because the HD 2400 has two monitor connectors. As far I know, all cards that have dual connectors will be recognized as 'two' cards. It's just Windows' way to deal with multiple monitors on one card.
