well wait that is nothing new. i could just add a video card and have more monitors. i though it ment i could have 2 screen that are not related. they would just be like having 2 computers. so you could have a gam going on one screen and the web going on the other?

so all it does is give me more hdmi outputs.

i need to learn more about my board
