Hey there guys. I want a dual monitor setup, one older square LCD monitor and new 1080P LCD monitor. I've been debating about this in my head for a little while whether I should buy a cheaper PCI Graphics card and connect the old monitor to that one or if I should connect them both to my Radeon HD 4830 (at least I think I can do that). I'm just thinking it might be better to have a whole GPU dedicated to games running on that monitor versus both monitors using up the processing power of that card.
So, what do you guys think? Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Well, I wasn't planning on using the second monitor for the games, more of an auxiliary monitor for multi-tasking, especially to show my music player while I'm gaming. So, yeah, light duty graphics processing is the goal. I just didn't know if it sounded like a better idea to keep the Radeon card from having to run both monitors at the same time, like if it would lag down the graphics on my main screen.
