dual monitor setup advice
I have a single monitor now, and would like to add a second to my desptop. My video card, a Nvidia Geforce FX5200, has a vga slot and a dvi slot. right now i have a 17" lcd vga monitor. i was wondering if i can just plug a new monitor with DVI into that extra slot(dvi), or do i need to upgrade my card. the card has 128 bit memory. will it handle the additional monitor, which will be a 19". do i need a switch box or something?
i have been doing video editing in movie maker, and i get a lot of dropped frames, and im not sure which component would be causing it. I have a pentium 4 3.0 ghz, 2 gb of ram, and my primary hard-drive runs at 5200 rpm. i suspect my hard drive might be too slow for editing large files. but i also thought it could be the video card being too slow.
so if anyone can tell me what upgrade would be most effective for my video editing purposes, and running two monitors, that would be a lot of help.
