With single video card... yes, you can play with multi monitor support... but only on certain games, since not every game has this ability.

 

I remember someone told me IL2 sturmovik was able to work with two, three and maybe four monitors... the one I am sure of is ST Armada 2.

 

What games does your friend want to try? I would contact the game's support channels to make sure its possible before buying a second large monitor.

Ive found the best tool with SLI is to get a Matrox TripleHead2go or DualHead2Go:

choose "Surround" not Widescreen in the pull down menu

 

 

You beat me to it peanutplanters. I was about to suggest the exact same thing. Funny thing is, they (dual/triplehead2go) only just recently started supporting widescreen monitors. Before it was only 4:3 monitors that you could side to side upto 3.

 

One suggestion for your friend though, make sure he has a monitor with as thin of a bezel as possible. If it's a thick bezel it doesn't work out too well.

 

Although that is another piece of hardware that required to purchase, but for any gamer, I think it's very much so worth it. :)
