    Dual Monitor w/ AGP and PCI

    I think the question and perhaps answer for this question was posed a while back, but I have to ask it. This question is for a friend. He has a GF3Ti-200 and wants to run another monitor because I just gave him a spare 19", and he had a 17". Since the GF3Ti-200 has only one RAMDAC, he can't run dual monitors with it though it was an output for VGA and DVI. Sooo, I have like 10 extra PCI video cards, all crappy for gaming, but they work just great for normal everyday stuff, which is all he needs. What would it take for me to set up his computer with one of these spare cards and allow him to run dual monitors? I think ol' man has three monitors with the use of a PCI card, so perhaps if you're around, holla back.

    Anyone have any tips?

    stick the PCI video card in the PC
    install the drivers.
    plug in a monitor
    reboot the machine

    check to make sure under device manager the PCI card shows up properly installed.

    goto display properties and add the second monitor.

    It's that simple???

    We'll try that and see how it goes.
