Sorry, but that card won't do it. If you give me your mobo specs, I'll find you one that does.

Dayum that's good computer. But like I said, the graphics card won't do it. This would do the job for sure. Amazon.com: EVGA GeForce GT 520 2048 MB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 DVI/HDMI/VGA Graphics Card, 02G-P3-1529-KR: Electronics

Also let me know your price range.

FYI
The Intel 4000 graphics is not a card. It is built in to the CPU chip and is only accessable if the motherboard supports it.

yes I know that, and that is why it won't work. I researched it, and that is how I found out it won't work. You need a graphics card, a decent one in order to dual monitor. The one I found you is perfect for the job.

It can't handle it for a few reasons. One, because you need two hook ups on the card, which no mother board can do. Two, In order to run two monitors at the same time, you need a certain amount of graphics memory, and capability, which the intel 4000 cannot give. Installing a new card is super duper easy. Just gotta open the side of the Tower (aka desktop case) and look at the motherboard for the slot where the graphics card goes. And just pop it in, and done. Once you have the computer, I can give you step by step instructions if you like.
