    I want to add something more here. Sometime a Windows 8 does not recognize dual monitor then you will need to update your video drivers. Most of the time it is auto detected and you do not need to manage the resolution settings. If you need a better output you must always use a HDMI connector which is capable of delivering best quality video on the screen.
