  1. Ok, I have this emachine computer and don't feel like buying a new one, I just want to be able to have dual display.

    I've heard way too many horror stories with emachines and video upgrades. So should I just keep the onboard and just get a single 24'' or something?

    I don't want to fry my mother board and I'm not hardware savy at all.

    Or if there is a good tutorial for video upgrades for this exact machine somewhere that would be awesome, but doubt it.

    Any advice or direction would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Justin
