    Duel Monitor question? Not the normal Question

    Ok i did a search on this question and can find nothing about my particular question. Is it possable to have multiple monitors with an AGP video card AND an old trident ISA card? I doubt it cause everyware i look it all says u need PCI or AGP. If u cant use an ISA card does anyone know why? Thanks

    I have never had anyone want to use that type of setup (ISA?) but, I presume that you could PROVIDED that the main card (AGP or PCI) is capable of dual use.
    Usually it is graphics board that has those capabilities due to the type of work required.
    Remember conflict with IRQs if both are trying to use it!
    Someone jump in if they have more recent info. please.

    Just get a G400 and solve the problem. Provided you're not using Win2K that is.

    I don't see why it shouldn't work though - I think the reason people say 'PCI or AGP' is simply because they don't expect anyone to have any ISA video cards around. Can't say I blame them...
