Hi, can I run two monitors with a OCZ500SXS2 PSU (500Watt), AMD II X6 1055T PROCESSOR, 4GB RAM a GTS 450 graphics card (over clocked a bit when bought) with one DVI, one VGA and one HDMI port, and a GA-MA78LMT-US2H motherboard.

If so how good would the quality be with one gts 450 graphics card would I be able to play a game like swtor on both screens in 1080p etc.?

I am currently using the HDMI port for my screen, so would I have to use a DVI connection for my other screen, would this mean the picture is worse?

Thanks in advance

will only be able to play one 1 screen. you can use the other screen for other things but the game probably won't run well with 2 screens.

Yes you can use both screens, but for gaming your graphics card will handle only one at 1080p, maybe if you lower resolution/graphics you will be able to use both.

Dvi connections are digital just like hdmi and there will be NO quality loss, the only thing that will be lost is the sound, but i don't think you are using it.

EDIT: forgot to say that not all games support DUAL MONITORS, so you must looks for a list of games that support this feature.
