  1. i would like to know how can i set up My work Pc for 2 monitors.
    i would like to make her capable of running mi os on 2 monitors ,
    just so that i can have the same desktop on both.
    (sorry for the long description i just dont know how it is called).
    (and i couldnt find a better way to let you guys know what i really want).

    PC specs.:

    *Mother board Foxconn (dont know the model)
    it has an on board memory.

    *Assus AGP Gforce FX 5200
    video card.

    *1GB of DDr2 memory.

    *2 dell monitors (non flat).

    I would like to use my onboard Video card
    with the G-force , but i have no idea on how to do it.

    Please keep in mind that this is an outdated Rig.

    If anybudy has a solution it will be most apriciated.

    Thanks in Advance....

    Regards ... :)

    You are probably going to have to ditch the on-board video and get a quality video card capable of running 2 monitors

    This is the card i have at work : http://www.xbitlabs.com/images/video/mainstream-roundup/fx5200.jpg

    is 128mb AGP , im not sure but i think that she can run them both...

    the one on my motherboard is a standart 32 bit video card.

    I know is not much ... but is just for the combat flight simulator.

    Wich way its more recomendavle and how .....?

    That xbit card should work... One monitor would be VGA and the other monitor could be VGA with a DVI to VGA adapter installed on the card
