    First of all, you must display interface in a two-headed video card, this card is now more common, for example: NVIDIA Introduces called "TwinView" technology GeForce2 MX / GeForce 3/GeForce 4/GeForce FX series graphics cards, ATi launched called "HydraVision" technology, Radeon VE/7x00/8x00/9x00 series, Matrox has introduced called "DualHead" technology G400/G450/G550/Parhelia (Magic Day) series graphics cards. But now there are many cards in order to reduce costs, we introduced a simplified version of more of these cards, will shield the second display output.
