    If I were to get 2 monitors to run on my computer, would i be able to control what appears on each monitor? For example, could I play a fullscreen game on one monitor, and have an internet browser or some other non-fullscreen program open on the other monitor? Also, I would need my desktop to stretch across both monitors when I'm out of the fullscreen program.

    So basically, I need to know whether or not I can make fullscreen only take up one monitor.

    Thanks in advance. :)

    well yes and no...

    sometimes you will not be able to play a game AND work @ the same time because the game uses up too many resources :)

    btw a nice little app to help you if you need more command over your monitors (dual monitor setup) is :)

    I use it quite a bit and it is very fun..

    Not only does the game use alot of resources, but some games just cant be minimized so your stuck on your 1st screen. But you can still watch other programs running on your 2nd monitor. Sometimes your windows key will free up your pointer though so you can use monitor 2 without exiting your game.
