I know nothing about the Nvidia line.
Are you using their drivers of the default ones that came with opensuse?

I know that in order to get dual display working in with ATI cards I had to
the proprietary drivers.

With the proprietary Nvidia drivers there is a different program you
should run to set the correct xorg.conf file. This makes sax useless.
I do not know how it should be done with the default drivers.
