DVI Monitors Vs Duplicate Images

Today’s question is in regards to splitting DVI monitors up:

   “I recently purchased two Mini DisplayPort to DVI Converter, but is there away to split the two DVI monitors up instead of having duplicate images?”

 The answer is:

You can’t get two different pictures with the same video card. In order to have separate images on each monitor, you would need to install a second video card in the system. Each monitor needs its own source to give you extended desktop. You can add an external HDMI Video Card along with an HDMI to DVI cable. This would be the easiest solution.

Keep in mind that if one monitor is higher quality than the other, you might need to change the resolutions on the more powerful monitor to match the lesser one.
