I have a Dell Vostro with one monitor output port. I'd like to get an adapter(splitter?) to plug two monitors into that will then plug into that one graphics card. Doing office stuff - word processing, excel, etc., - nothing graphically challenging.

I just don't know what the part that I want is called. And I'm making an assumption that this adapter would be less expensive than a dual port video card. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Any help available here please? :p

The reason not to is because it won't work. A splitter will send exactly the same image to two displays. Is that what you want? If so, buy the splitter. If you want two different images, you need an additional video adapter which costs more. You're buying adapter, not a simple cable.
