HOW TO:
1. Left-click your Start Menu.
2. Scroll over Settings and left-click the Control Panel.
3. When the Control Panel opens, double-click the Display Properties icon.
4. When the Display Properties dialog box appears, click the Settings tab.
5. On the Settings tab, change the Display pull-down menu to the new card you just installed.
6. Now, check the box marked "Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor."
7. Hit the Apply button when you've finished making the changes.
8. Presto! You now have an extended desktop that spans two monitors.

A 7300GS has dual monitor support.

You can use one video card.

To some degree, you are able to multi-task between games and other apps. But, since games take the place of your entire desktop, multitasking will be finicky. Dual monitors is particularly useful if you are working on several windows at once.

The 7600GT also supports dual monitors. Any graphics card that has two outputs can do it.
