Yes. It is possible but you will need a video card for each of the monitors. About the game thing, I'm really not sure; it will depend on the game (or how many windows the game has).

you just need a vid card with dual monitor support. and spreading one game over 2 monitors... I've heard of people doing that. it depends on the game settings.
