I've never understood how these dual monitor things work
I've got a sparkle 7600GT video card, and a 19" TFT monitor. I was planning on upgrading to 22" and selling my 19" but as you guys are saying dual monitors are so awesome, I might as well keep my 19" and go dual
But how does it work??? Lol
Do you just get 2 DVI cables and connect both of them to the back of your graphics card? (My video card has 2 DVI ports at the back)
At the moment my 19" is hooked up to my graphics card with a VGA cable using a VGA to DVI adapter like this one
- The bottom one
Am I better off getting a DVI to DVI cable for my dual monitors, or using adapters, or is there no difference?
I'm a bit of a n00b when it comes to these dual monitor thing, I used to be really computer savvy but when all this new stuff came out, I kind of drifted off....lol
Also, once I've connected the dual monitors, how does it work? Say can I play a game on one monitor and talk on msn on the other? How does the computer know which monitor to "work on" if you know what I mean
Any help is appreciated ....
