Plug one monitor into one plug, plug another into the second plug. go to control pannel, appearance and themes, display, settings, extend windows onto the second monitor. There you have it, you can do stuff on both screens.

Might be a bit laggy playing games with 2 monitors going tho. Though a 7800GT should be able to handle it. XD

Well, heres a story, I had this old card once, 128mb, AGP - cant remember what is was, ill try and dig it out, anyway, I used to play little games, car games really, and I had two very nice DELL TFT'S - and I could game on one and watch TV on the other, and do all sorts, and it always ran smoothly - and this card now is just shite!
