    I have a Packardbell imedea S3800

    The video Card has a DVI, HDMI and CRT output.

    I have a monitor that connects to the DVI socket and a second monitor with a VGA plug.

    I want to be able to connect the second monitor to the VGA socket and then be able to see two diffarent screens.

    Is it possible from this video card to do this or am I going to have to buy a second VGA

    I see on the back of the computer there is a second VGA socket.

    My operating system is a windows 7.

    Many thanks

    Yes, it's possible and commonly done. Simply connect the monitor the the VGA port on the graphics card and Windows 7 will allow you to use it.
