Default dual screen options

well I have a 19 inch flat screen, and a 19 inch CRT, Now I want to use them both. th ecrt for games becuase of its higher res. capabilities. and the LCD for web surfing and everything else. Now I wont be able to do this until I get my new vid. card with 2 outputs. Is there an app. or somethin that you would use to switch between the two, or do you just drag the screen over to the other before you enter the game??

you would set that up in the desktop display properties... the system usually will detect 2 screens and help you set it up.

as soon as u plug it in, you just go to display properties and the other monitor will appear in the top window grayed, you just click that one and then at the bottom click extend my desktop to this screen.
