Default Matrox Dual Screens

I have just revieved my 2nd monitor which I ordered a few days ago. It has been a while since I last had dual displays and it is great. The only problem is that I really want to play my games on dual screen. I have heard that there is a device by Matrox (called dual head or something) that will do this for me. I have found it but it is onlt an analogue one, both of my screens are digital so I'd rather not have to use analogue. Also will it definately play games on dual screens? Thanks.

Like mirrored or as in stretching across dual screens? I set up my dual screens by just adjusting it in the system properties when i connect both of my graphics cards into the slots - (DVI). Just say "extend my windows desktop onto this monitor.

Stretching would be fine, it is fine when I'm at the desktop, but when I go into a game, it only uses one screen, which is normal, I think.
