If I purchase the following computer and then hook an 2nd monitor up to it.

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/pavilion-20-all-in-one-computer-4gb-memory-500gb-hard-drive/1681348.p?id=1219059643548&skuId=1681348&st=categoryid$abcat0501005&cp=1&lp=1

I want to hook a 2nd monitor up to it. Does this computer have the capacity? I already have the 2nd monitor that hooks up with VGA. Would I need to buy anything to hook it up to this computer? Or is it like a laptop and it very easily hook up an additional monitor?

If I do have to purchase something else, what is it called, any idea how much  it is?

If you read the specifications tab, it does not say it handles more than one video output and does say it has no HDMI output. There is no indication it can handle a second monitor.

According to HP, you can add more monitors with a USB graphics adapter.

Sorry, no second monitor. It has no VGA, DVI, or HDMI ports which could be used to attach a second monitor. I suppose you could add a second monitor using USB, but you would need an adapter like the one below:
