Depending on the video card you have. Many run two monitors. and you can either. mirror the display or have them seperate. You change that in your operating software.

Re: Duel Monitor Set-Up

With most modern graphics cards of average value or more, you don't have to mirror a dual monitor setup (they can be independant). It will vary from card-to-card, but I would say that the great majority will allow independent screens on the two monitors.
