I think it is possible but not sure it will give you enough of the "oomph ".
easier if you use XP - it does support dual monitor, one PCI, one AGP. Not
sure your PC power is adequate for XP.
I think there is something form Matrox and or ATI that allows dual monitor
under WINNT but then may not be the game playing card you want
depending on the age of your PC, it maybe cheaper buy and plain PC and boost
it with you ideal video card. You will then have the performance and the
greater variety of games avail. to you
