Run Dual Monitors on a computer without a dual monitor video card

I have a computer that does not have a dual monitor video card.  I want it to run dual monitored, so I bought a VGA splitter, and so of course its just duplicating the 1st screen.  Is there any way to make it run like a true dual monitor set up?

You would either have to replace the current video card with one that supports dual displays, or Install a second video card and plug one monitor into each.

Some splitters are able to stretch, but is is unlikely that you have one of these.
The plain answer you didn't want to hear is no it cannot be done, but the additional of another spare/free video card will let you do it.  Some baords with onboard video can allow the onboard AND the add-in card to supply dual monitors, but not that many mainboards will allow it.
