Help with monitor suggestions/ dual monitor setup
 
Hey guys, so I was interested maybe in this monitor:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236117

or this one:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236100

These are both good sizes for me to have "two" on my desk. I was wondering, if I wanted to connect these two monitors together to my work laptop, do I need to check something? Like compatibility?

And what do I need to buy to connect those two monitors together so that I can hook it up with the laptop? Is it possible to have the laptop in a "closed" state, but still running on the two monitors with an external mouse and keyboard?

Thanks, I'm really not too tech savvy, so a little confused here about what it is that I need to check to make sure I can actually run the dual monitor setup efficiently/properly.

And if you guys have better suggestions for dual monitor setups (like which monitor you'd recommend) please let me know as well! I plan on to mainly use this for work, with a very occasional gaming thrown in here and there, but mainly for work (Excel work, etc.)

Thanks again guys!
Mir

Reading closely, it says that for gaming it would be best to use the primary display, because this USB adapter is intended for general usage.
