2nd Display on Nvidia FX5900 ?

I have an Nvidia FX5900 and wanted to know , is it possible to have a 2nd display on this graphics card, even if it is a TFT display, just I have my 21"sony crt monitor hooked to it already and it has one DVI port free so I am assuming it must be able to have one TFT hooked to it without any issues but I wanted confirmation if this was possible or not ?

Also if it is, will it treat both screens as one or how will it work ?

This card support two monitors. All you have to do is to connect the other monitor.
Go into display properties and under settings, play with the orientation of 1 and 2. These would be the numbers showing up in square box. There are two options right under that which can be enabled or disabled.

Has nvidia got any web page or documentation to confirm this, the one I have is a one made by asus but I am assuming it will be pretty much the same for all of them.
Absolutely, have the same card and it will work quite well. The card will support both CRT(with adapter) or LCD/DVI. You can also run a TV as the second output. You must enable NView in the NVidia Desktop management Tab...the second monitor/TV(not Both, only 2 devices) must be powered on at startup so the NVidia driver detects it.
