Arch Linux: dual monitor

I use gnome 2.26.1 + compiz-fusion on my Archlinux box. I wanted to add a second monitor to it. I have nVidia GeFore FX 5200 card and the following drivers[W@localhost ~]$ pacman -Q | grep nvidia
nvidia-173xx 173.14.18-2
nvidia-173xx-utils 173.14.18-1
I connected one monitor through DVI cable and the second by the VGA cable. I had no problems setting dual screen using nvidia-settings program (it comes with the above drivers). Below are my settings:I also attach a photo of my compiz 3D cube on dual monitor screen. Later I change the monitors to have two, the same one. It can be noticed, that each monitor "is" on a different site of the 3D cube:-)

    I'm amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that's both educative and
    engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about.

    I am very happy that I came across this in my search
    for something regarding this.
