Well my friend brought over a new monitor to try and it worked perfectly! He's a cooler dude than my brother and let me keep both of them (I bought the monitor I was using from him a few months ago)
It's always been my dream to run multiple monitors, Now the only problem is that the DVI port on my GPU is blocked by my HDMI to DVI adapter, I was looking at this kind of thing http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882750035
but would that put the same picture on both? Otherwise I'll order an HDMI to DVI cable.
