Hello guys,

My current Config is
Processor: Intel core i5 e2500 3.30ghz (second Gen)
Mainboard: Intel DH61WW -> Going to upgrade it to ASRock Z77 Extreme 3
Ram: Corsair XMS 4gb x 1 -> Going to Upgrade it to Corsair Vengeance 4gb x2 (planning to add another 8gb kit in future)
GPU: Power Color HD 6670 -> Going to Upgrade it to GTX 760
PSU: Cooler Master extreme power plus 460w -> Going to Upgrade it to Corsair TX650
Cabinet: Cooler Master elite 310
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB

My current Monitor is: Viewsonic 19.5 inch LED Backlit LCD - VA2037a-LED Monitor

Iam currently planning to buy some 24" or higher monitor for gaming.

Currently i have 2 monitors in mind.
BenQ XL2411T 24 inch LED Backlit LCD Monitor - Kinda expensive for me, but i dont mind if its worth it.

or
BenQ 24 inch LED Backlit LCD - RL2455H Monitor - seems perfect to me price wise

i wish to run dual monitor setup for my normal work, like surfing youtube and stuff
and for gaming, i just want to use the new monitor,

i just wanted to know if above mentioned setup is possible without giving much load to my GPU and without affecting my fps in games

The only difference is the more expensive one is 144 hz meaning you can see up to 144 fps, with your card chances are you aren't getting more than 60 fps anyway, and with the 760 you probably will get steady 60, or if you don't mind 60 fps stick with the cheaper one.

you should be fine once you get your 760 on at least high settings.

Dual monitor doesn't affect your GPU too much. It does increase idle power consumption/heat output somewhat but doesn't really make much difference in performance.
