Well basically you can't create 2 different PCs very easily with 2 displays, but you can just extend the cartoon to the TV and do your basic browsing on the smaller display. However, I know no way to route the sound of different applications to differnet outputs, that is the only thing you still need to figure out.

If you have 2 monitors in extended mode(not cloned or duplicated or mirrored, EXTENDED), you can just put the cartoon on the other. This is fine if you don't require sound for yourself.. Only for the cartoon...

Use the Extend Desktop feature in your graphics card control panel, rather than Duplicate or Clone (I might have names slightly off of what each feature is actually called in the Nvidia Control Panel, but I am pretty sure that you get the idea of what to look for). It should be in the monitor or resolution settings of the Nvidia control panel.

Same I either watch web video full screen on one monitor, or I bring up Windows Media Center, and have that playing TV, while I either work or web browser on the other monitor. Works perfectly.

you can extend your desktop, or use eyefinity to make 2 monitors into just 1 big monitor.
