    Not really sure what info you need so just listed the main things I could think of. If it would work any advice on how to set it up would be great, it it wouldn't any advice on what to change to make it work would be great, and if you need more info just let me know, thanks in advance.

    Processor, RAM, and hard drive have nothing to do with multiple monitor setups or support. You need a graphics card that supports dual monitors, or you need 2 graphics cards. You've just listed a generic graphics card chipset.

    Since it's a Radeon HD 7xxx series card it can support up to 6 monitors as long as the connectors are present.

    And that video card according to this website: http://www.overclock.co.uk/product/...I-E-Retail-with-Free-Dirt-Showdown_44336.html
    has the following 4 connectors: 1 x DVI-I, HDMI, 2x Mini DisplayPort

    So yes it can easily support 2 monitors as long as the monitors will connect to one of those ports; you can also get adapters to go from DVI-I to VGA or HDMI, from HDMI to VGA, or from mini-Display Port to anything.
