At the moment i have installed Win 7 ultimate x64 bit . I am planning to install also snow leopard on the same disk for dual boot . Is it possible to boot both Os at the same time and have them displayed in 2 monitors ( Win 7 in my main and Mac on 2nd)

Nope. If it were possible, how would the two OS'es control hardware like the HD. who would have control over it?

There might be a way to do it in two virtual machines but I am clueless as to how

Nope.

When dual booting, you can only run OS at a time. The only way to have them side by side, would be to run one in a Virtual Machine.
