Dual Monitor setup + HDTV?
Hey Ho Everybody!

I am running a self-built computer with the following specs:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ Dual Core
Gigabyte GA-M52L-S3 Motherboard
4GB RAM
Foxconn Nvidia Geforce 9500GT 512MB Graphics card

I was thinking of buying two 19” TFT-monitors and using them as dual monitors. Preferably, I would like to use DVI to connect them. My graphics card, however, does not have dual DVI outputs. Would it be possible to buy another graphics card, such as the “MSI HD 2600 PRO PCI-E”, which has dual DVI, and using these cards simultaneously?

Secondly, I was wondering if it would be possible to connect the computer to a HDTV as well for streaming video and playing games etc. In that case, could I connect it to my primary graphics card, Nvidia Geforce 9500GT 512MB, while using the secondary graphics card for the monitors? Would the HDTV then have a cloned picture of both the monitors or just one of them? Is this even possible?

Thankful for answers
Fredrik
