Hello. So as you can see I am looking to do Dual Monitor for my PC Build. But I have no idea how to go about this. My first Monitor which will be for Gaming Mainly is going to be a http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Is this a good Monitor btw?? My second Monitor which will be for work and watching Videos would be another although I am not sure that would work?! And also I have 1 EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SC ACX so would I need another for this too work and how would I go about connecting them together??

Any help would be amazing and I would really appreciate it as so far I have watched YouTube videos/read articles and found no help to be honest. So hopefully someone can help me on here. Thank You

That video card has

    1 x DVI-I
    1 x DVI-D
    1 x HDMI
    1 x DisplayPort


So any second monitor with those connections will work fine. I'd recommend an HDMI monitor since your primary monitor already has DisplayPort capability. Just plug it in and make sure your primary display is set correctly in your Display panel like this

Thankyou CrispyChips really helpful for me. Do you know of any decent Monitors? and should I get 2 120+Hz or one 120+ and one 60Hz?

If you only plan to use one for gaming id just get a basic 60hz for the side.

..now if you later want to go Eyefinity/Nvidia Surround with triple 120hz monitors,im not the person to ask about that. lol
