    questions about dual monitors

    My desktop PC has a Nvidia geforce 6200, and i want to have a dual monitor setup.

    i have ordered the new monitor, and the adapter so i can plug it in to the DVI socket on the Graphics card.

    the question i want to ask, is that if i have dual monitors, can i still use compiz?
