    I was told by dell that I only need a splitter to set up dual monitor, and I am not sure if they only intended to use cloning, and not acess to both monitors. Under-Display Properties--Settings--only the default monitor is shown. It does not reister a second moitor? Can anyone help please?

    A splitter will only clone the monitors and will probably only register the first.
    Your 6800 should have dual outputs.
    Depending on the connectors and the monitor,you may need a DVI to VGA
    adapter to connect to the second output.
