Hi, Michelle :).

Not sure what a "duel screen" is...are you referring to a monitor?

Any monitor can be used for any system...monitors are as interchangeable as keyboards and mice. These are Plug and Play devices.

Windows will install any drivers which may be necessary for such to normally function...I've haven't worried about a driver for monitors since my Win 95/98 days.

If I'm misunderstanding, please provide more detail/questions :).

Moving/installing the graphics card...will only require installing the drivers for that card.

Example...I have two systems and I have an old nVidia FX 5200 card which I don't use. If I wanted to install/use it in either of my systems, I would have to install the drivers for that card from the CD that came with it...or I could download the drivers from the website of the card manufacturer.

The drivers are necessary to enable functioning of the card within Windows.
