hey scorp

Ive read a few stories about this that adding a second card is possible and will work, but ive also seen people have some minor issues with BIOS settings and stuff along that line.

I know of someone that installed a 2nd monitor and just used it to span his desktop across both of the monitors, is this what you are trying to accomplish?

Wait for some other reply's but it might be just as easy as installing a 2nd video card on the motherboard (if there is an available slot for it) and just testing it out to see if it works

hope this info helped in some way

It can be done. The easiest way would be to find a card you like with dual monitor outputs.

My vote goes with Aklan's suggestion >>>>> PCI slot video cards are sloth performers anyway >>>> a dual output AGP would be a far better choice.
