If the card has two video outs on the back then you can setup dual monitors on it. For gaming dual monitor is not very friendly imho. I use to game and in a dual monitor setup and games tend to confuse the dual monitor configuration. Most games go into full screen mode and capture the mouse but with the extra monitor the mouse can sometimes not get locked into the game screen all the time and cause problems. Also The card is now working harder to display two screens that takes away performance on your game.

This this client wants to play world of warcraft using two screens in twin view with a nvivia g force 8600 gt. I have looked up some "googles" online that state the g force 8000 series doesn't support full screen monitoring. I want to help this client with his problem. Also, I am wondering about switching the video memory. Any more help?
