Windows 7: How to Setup a Dual-Monitor?

Hmm. Will this 24" monitor be able to act as a TV (be able to connect to a PS3/XBOX, etc) - out of subject, but curious.

And what will I need except from a 24"/15" Monitor, a blue cable, and an DVI-VGA Adapter. As I do not know what I need to get for the 24" to work.

Definately hook up the 24 using the DVI connector! Way WAY better signal quality. In fact you should use DVI for both monitors if they can both handle it. Only use the VGA adapter for a monitor with no DVI input.

(Though I had one person tell me once that liked the VGA better because the DVI was "too sharp")

Well I am about to purchase the monitor, but before I wanna test if it works. Using one of my old monitors with a Blue VGA wire will it work?
