Default Help With Dual Monitors

I have been wondering for some time how to use two monitors from one computer. I have a Geforce2, and some extra random video cards laying around. Can i just put in another video card somehow and connect another monitor? Iv tried that, but there are probably some other options i need to modify. Can anyone help me?

you'll need to get a video card that has two outputs on. Usually they have a VGA and a DVI output, but u sometimes come with adapters which convert the sockets to what you want. I recommend the ATI Radeon 9550 256mb, or 6000 pro. Both are at a very good price (around 40 - 50) and are very good with gaming and other things.

there are basically a converter for every component on a computer... all you really need to do is reasearch and trust me you will find a converter that you are looking for. www.newegg.com has a lot that you can find there.

If you don't like adapters, then you need two types of monitors: analog (vga) and digital (dvi), or an Asrock mobo...
