Will a Split Cord Work?

I have my monitor cord going from my tower splits and one goes to my monitor and the other goes to a projector. Will display fusion allow me to have two different screens, one on my overhead and a different one on my computer? Or do I have to buy some form of hardware for the tower to have two plugs going directly to the monitor and projector for them to be different?
Thank you,
Jim

Splitting the video output will only allow for the same output to be displayed on both display devices. What you'll need for independent displays (Extended Desktop) is either a second video card, or a replacement video card that has two or more outputs.

Alternatively, there are a lot of USB video expansion devices that allow you to add a separate independent display via USB, instead of having to mess about with installing hardware internally.

Hope that helps!
