Currently im using a 22" PC monitor which is my primary, use all the time, does everything monitor.
I have also connected my 32" TV for use as a secondary display. Usually i dump like SKYPE, or mIRC or a web browser on there.

When running Unigine with both monitors connected i was unable to run full screen since it was trying to use both monitors. Will i have the same problem with games?

I was hoping to play full screen games on the primary 22" monitor, while using the secondary monitor to have a web browser open and skype to chat with friends.

Im using a Gigabyte GTX 560Ti OC graphics card, which has 2 DVI and a HDMI output.

You'll likely have the same issue with most games. Many games, when you run them in full-screen mode, will run on the primary display and turn the display off for the other monitors. This is why windowed mode is an option.
