Please settle a debate for me - FCP window arrangements affect performance?

I like to have our 2 screen edit systems set up in the Avid format - Files effects etc on the left monitor, and timeline, viewer, and canvas on the right monitor. I've worked like this for 6 years starting with a G5 and now on two mac pros. This editor is telling me that the video card is left monitor dominant and that having video elements on the right causes the mac to be sluggish and not edit as well as having the timeline on the left monitor. I think this is ridiculous - it's an Octo core mac with a video card recommended at the time of purchase (the mac is 2 years old) by some of the forum leaders here.

This is stupid, right? Macs don't play video better on one window vs another, right? It's frikken 2011 already - Avid's been doing this for years as the default setup...but maybe that explains my experiences with avid....
