Multi monitors what would happen if..?

Im interested in setting up a multi monitor setup.

My main monitor will be for gaming, and the other will be for web browsing/server admin clients.

Could i run one monitor off my GPU and the other off my Core i5's integrated GPU via the built in HDMI connector? or would this cause a confusion with windows?

the reason i ask is because i cant see my ATI 6950 handeling both BF3 and another monitor,

You could probably pull it off on just that card, but you would want the second monitor to be a smaller and if possible lower resolution model.
