Dual Monitor CPU Usage

I'm not sure if I'm in the right place, however I figured this place to be fitting.

I stream on Twitch TV with Xsplit very well, but I find it tough to be able to manage Xsplit and what I'm streaming on the same monitor. I have a backup HP VGA monitor I'd like to add to my build. I see the VGA port and everything, I'm just curious if this should have any effect on my stream (CPU wise) or in any other way effect my performance? All I would be doing is having my stream on my main screen through DVI, and on my VGA monitor I would have only my Xsplit and my stream page so I can easily manage it. Any suggestions (I'm at work and this has just been bugging me since I can't actually try it right now)?

My Build:
Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce 7025
AMD FX-Series FX-4100(3.6GHz)
500GB HDD Capacity
AMD Radeon HD 6670 1GB
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

Thanks for any help.

It adds a little extra load onto the GPU, but that is minimal and shouldn't make any difference in your streaming. It shouldn't affect your CPU at all, so you should not see any effect on your streaming.
