You can use a SIIG USB 2.0 to VGA if you need another connection.  Windows should detect the drivers for the monitor.  Plus you can get the latest drivers for the SIIG on their website.

If you have a DVI connection you can use Tripp Lite 6" Displayport to DVI Adapter.

Does the Acer's graphics card have dual ports? If so, what type? DVI, HDMI, VGA?

I should have also asked you the make and model of your graphics card two determine whether it has dual view capabilities as part of the driver.

Do you monitors have HDMI connectors?
If you need HDMI cables look closely at how they are keyed. Graphic card HDMI ports and cables have a single 45 degree angle on one corner where TV HDMI ports have two corners at 45's.

Do you monitors have HDMI connectors?   No, they don't. How about convert VGA to DVI? Is this possible?

A VGA splitter; but depending on the graphics card driver you may end up with two identical screens and not one screen traversing both monitors.
