Even easier, connect the second monitor to the video card, no need for the onboard video. The only way the monitors being a different size is if you set them to clone mode (both display the same thing, a waste of time unless you're doing presentations or something). Just set the second monitor to extended mode and you should be good to go.

Yes you will. The card should have come with one.
