How can I use extended monitor set of two HP- EM869A [has Two connectors: one 15-pin mini D-sub analog VGA and one DVI-D (VGA analog or digital)] with my Gateway DX4840-37. I have one vga and one HDMI port on back panel. I do not want duplicate image on both monitors I want to run different application display separately on each monitors. What is the inexpenssive option with reasonably good quality of display
Windows 7 allows for extending the desktop. That is the two screens appears a one extremely large one. By extending the desktop you can move windows across them. The programs are only shown on the monitor it is dragged to.

I personally use this with VMplayer to virtualize Linux in windows * and display Linux on the second screen
