I was recently given an extra monitor, so I want to go to a 2 monitor system.  I don't game, but do watch some videos on Youtube.

 

What is a good, basic 2 port Video card that I can order to put in my comptuer, so I can use both montiors?
 

Also, what is a good substance that can be used to clean gunk, fingerprints, and other stuff from a flat panel monitor?

 

Thanks,

 

Jeremy James

Well...if we knew something about the computer system...a video card could easily be suggested :).

 

As for cleaning...are you referring to the screen of the monitor?  I just use a glass cleaner/Windex but I'm  not as prissy about computer components as some users might be.

Hi, your system currently has a PCI-E Nvidia 7300LE which will be replaced to a Sapphire Radeon HD6450 1GB. The graphics card has the following output, VGA, HDMI and DVI. It does not require any auxiliary power and sips on a tiny amount of power hence the stock power supply will be capable of powered the graphics card.

I have used a cheapy evga geforce 210 ($30 USD) effectively for multiple displays. it has the d-sub vga and dvi-i and hdmi outputs..  it is the slim profile variety and requires very little additonal power.
