    Nope. Just need your drivers and Catalyst control center, or whatever nvidia comes with, and then its easy set up from there, just set it to dual monitors.

    How could you use Catalyst control centre? I'm not using AMD processor (I'm using Intel's)

    You actually do not need either Catalyst control center or the nVidia control panel. To configure the monitors, plug them both into your video card, right click the desktop, and choose "Properties" for XP or "Personalize" for Vista. Then choose the "Settings" tab. The second monitor will be gray. Select it, and check the box to extend your desktop to it.
