Step 4: go into your GPU's software and play around with the monitor orientation if you desire.

You'll probably need a better card than that to support gaming at 3840x1080. Certainly to support 5760x1080.

If you're only going to use one monitor for gaming don't worry about it.

So its ok if I plug in the first monitor using HDMI and the second using vga? Is there a converter for display port? I only want to use one for gaming and the other one for chat among other things.

Not ashamed to admit this was the first thing I did when I got two monitors.
