Default HDMI loss and dual monitors

how long is the 'max' length of HDMI cable or DVI cable to be without getting loss?

and does all types of dual monitoring stress the gpu twice as hard as a single monitor.
just wandering because i want to run a hdmi cable to my tv to use it to watch movies to, and use my reg 22in monitor for regular use.

HDMI/DVI connections are digital. You either have it or you don't. The maximum length I'd personally recommend is 25 feet, though you can go a bit further.

Blue Jeans Cable has a great guide if you're interested.
