    You will need to buy a DVI to VGA converter so you can plug in a second monitor.

    Your link has been cropped and doesn't work.

    If you have the white DVI and a blue VGA connector, then yes, your card will support dual monitors. You will need to use your display properties to set this up (or your video card's control panel eg ATi, nVidia). You will have the choice of cloned desktops (each monitor will show the same desktop) or spanned (a single desktop will span across both the monitors).

    Just out of curiosity. Is it possible to have two monitors, showing different sreens, of say, Outlook Express & PF1 , and to be able to work both of them??? PJ

    When I was younger I heard but didn't listen.
    Now I am older, I listen but cannot hear.

    If it is not broke, don't make it broker by trying to make it better. (This applies specifically to PJ)

    Yes, of course. I have my dual monitors set up so that the desktop spans across the two of them, but each monitor displays different windows eg, email on one, browser on the other. Your mouse just moves between the two as if it is one physical monitor.
