the graphics card you are on about has to outputs? confirm - all you would need is two monitors and to set it up so windows recognises both screens and to set 1 as primary and to "extend my windows desktop onto this monitor" with the other and choose with the setting the virtual location of both screens so you can just drag the mouse from one screen to the other.

done that but what i need to know probaly is there any way to use the mouse on one screen without minimising the screen on monitor 1. if i minimise it throws me out of the server with an error.

I cant really understand what you are trying to tell me, with 2 monitors you only have to move your mouse from one screen to another
