Is there anyway possible to set up duel moniters with lets say, a game or any type of program on one display and your desktop, another program on the other? :thumbsup:

Yes, you can install a dual video card or just a second video card and when you go into the display properties just select "extend my desktop" instead of "clone".

a lot of games really dont like dual monitors...
though thankfully, this is changing somewhat...
some developers are discussing that you could
put the shooter elements (hud, crosshair) on
your main monitor... and then maps showing
collected resources, your troop's locations,
possible enemy sightings... all sorts of stuff.

usually having dual monitors on degrades
performance somewhat... not really noticable
from the desktop, but *very* noticable when
playing a demanding game... like planetside
or half-life2

basically it **can** be done but it might be
dissapointing....

What if my video card supports duel moniters?
