Default Re: Trouble Connecting 2nd Monitor To Desktop - Is It Even Possible?

**UPDATE**

Thanks everyone for their input, but major kudos to whitie III who pointed out that the DisplayPort was the port I should use for the 2nd monitor.

Ended up buying a DisplayPort to VGA adapter via eBay for $11.


Now I have dual monitors without the need of a dGPU, just plug and play.
