  1. The problem with the second monitor is that the mouse will not travel over to the second monitor while a game is on the first monitor so while you can put what you want on the second monitor you can't control it once the game starts.

    But i will have sound in both cases ? Can a switch between they to control one and another when i want ? Or i have to quit the game ?
  3. The game will take control of the keyboard and the mouse and you may or may not have sound if you choose to play a movie. I have never tried that but I have put open windows on the second monitor to see what the ram ,video card and cpu are doing as far as temps and resources are concerned. If you are able to minimize the game by pushing the windows key on the keyboard then that woud free up the mouse and possibly the keyboard as well.

    I use the integrated sound on my Asus P6TD. When I run a game on one monitor and a video on the other monitor the sound is mixed. So your toddler would be watching Thomas the train while you are ruthlessly gunning down the bad guys. Doesn't work out too well sound-wise at least for the toddler. Not sure what would be needed to separate the audio. You'd probably need two different audio devices (like integrated + a sound card) and configure the game and video player to use the separate devices to output their sound.
  5. Thanks for the answers...it's simple, but this feature for games i promising, play skyrim in one monitor, and map in another will be good, i thins with drives update and patch in games, the developers can come up with something.
