Seeing as they are different sizes I dont' see why you'd want to do that. Put a movie on in windowed mode. Stretch it over to the other screen so its playing on both. You really want it looking like that?

What your doing right now? Doing something on one screen while you do something else on another. I had my TV hooked up to my computer. Allowed me to surf the web on my monitor, while the wife watched something on the TV. You would need three screens (same size) and a 5 series AMD card if you want to do multi screen gaming.

Watch 2 movies at the same time?

On multi-screen gaming, the 4870 should do it fine with 2 screens, just the same with the movie, you wouldn't want 2 different ones.
