One of them is the Intel graphics cite integrated into your CPU, the second is the discrete nVidia graphics card. Generally speaking, the presence of external graphics hardware on the PCI bus causes the integrated graphics core to automatically disable itself, but the device is still visible on the bus.

For your multi monitor stuff, most documentation will probably refer you to xrandr. However, nVidia didn't implement the standard stack in the proprietary driver, last time I looked. That said, I pay very little attention to three nVidia stuff, so you should check that situation hadn't changed.
