      usually you have two outs on your video card in the back of your PC. just plug in monitors in both of them. ;)

      You can go onto Display Options and select the "Extended" option to make it so you have 2 monitors displaying different things and move your mouse between them.

      Be warned, once you have started using 2 monitors you will find it almost impossible to go back to just one monitor again:D

      It would be easier if your motherboard had built in an additional slot for serial port interface. If it has not you might try using some adapters or converters, one of them would look something like this -

      but I myself have never tried it before. Perhaps someone else here has, in any case before ordering better look up more information on this.
