Default Dual mointors

I was thinking anyone in here use dual mointors. I'm watching a TV show using IRC, and playing a game. And everything is kinda small. I was wondering on the possibilites of a dual mointor setup.

You will need a card with dual DVI or VGA outs or one VGA and one DVI out and a fairly powerful graphics card at that as well as a semi decent processor.

AMD Athlon XP2600+ or BETTER
Pentium4 Socket 478 2.53GHz or BETTER

nVidia 5200FX or BETTER
ATi 9200 or BETTER

It most likely won't. Just make sure it comes with DVI to VGA adapters, and then it will work.
