It may or may not be possible.  Games frequently cause issues with using other screens.  Normally if you can play it in Windowed mode you can do what you're looking to do.  Currently I have Firefox on my left screen, World of Warcraft on the middle, and Monty Python's Meaning of Life on the right.


Connect the monitor and go into your display properties by right clicking a blank area on your desktop and select to Extend your desktop.  Select a display to be your main display.
