    Dual Monitor Question

    hi,
    rite now i'm thinkin of goin dual monitors but my current grafix card (in sig) doesn't have the dvi in which dat i could just get a dvi to analog adapter but bak wen i bought the card i didn't think that i would use the dvi and i didn't feel like payin like an extra 20 or so for it either so i was wondering if i could just get a pci grafix card and put that in and use that grafix as my second monitor?

    I think you can do that if you have Windows2000 or XP, but I have never do this myself.

    Just make sure that you have the agp card set to be the first card, and not the pci.
