Daisy Chaining Question

Hi all, I'm building a new PC and I would like a dual-monitor setup where if I place the monitors side by side, I can drag a window from one screen to the other almost seamlessly. I'm using a new monitor and an old one I already have. However, some reviews I've seen of the new monitor I'm buying have had trouble with daisy chaining. Since my GPU will have multiple outputs (using an HDMI for old monitor and DP for new one) can I have a dual monitor setup by just plugging them each individually in to the GPU instead of to each other?

Thanks in advance.

Yes. For your purpose of a dual-monitor setup for a single system, there's no big reason to daisy-chain.
