It is, but you also achieve the same thing just by connecting two monitors to the same card.

only one vga output on card, so if i split then mirrored, right? If card had 2 vga or vga and other then maybe but mine is only 1 vga and i am trying to extend desktop not mirror.

What card do you have and what inputs do your monitors have?

the machine has a only one video card with 1 vga, no embeded vga. Both monitors have dvi and vga. I know I can go get another graphics card at the distributor but i was wondering if I could take one of many existing vga cards on hand to PCI input and get windows 7 to use it for extended desktop?

yes it will work fine with two cards. I've a gtx4601gb and a gt520 in my system just so I can game and and (easily) have a web browser open without adding extra work to the 460.
