Well, from my experience, you should be able to see the desktop on both and maybe stretch the desktop between both monitors, but to really get the full effect, you need 1 card with two ports. Even then im not sure because ive never tried two monitors on one card, only 1 for each card.
Anyway, from what I tried, you can't have a fullscreen application, game, or movie shared or transfered between the two cards\monitors. Probably because of the built in codecs of the cards. You can open a fullscreen application on each monitor though. Thats what i've been doing. (ex. watching a movie on one monitor and playing a game on the other. Please someone correct me if i'm wrong. I've never gone too in depth on this.
