david95, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Yes you can run them independently, that is what extended mode is (clone mode is all displays showing the same thing), allowing you to run different applications on each display. For what you want to do with playing games on the TV you will have to set it as the primary display as most games will on launch/work on the primary, especially if run full screen.
