    i got a new graphics card its Asus AMD Radeon HD 6670 Graphics Card (1GB, PCI-Express, GDDR5, Dust-proof Fan)

    it only has 1 slot to fit in a monitor cable into it.. so does that mean i cant have dual monitors? or is there some way i can have dual monitors?

    The above suggestion will give you two monitors which see the same thing (duplicated display)

    You can get a display port to VGA connector which will allow you to have 2 separate monitors (one DVI-I and the other VGA)

    I believe a display port is pretty much the same thing as a DVI-I port (analog and digital) so it should be a straight cable with no converter necessary eg http://www.amazon.co.uk/StarTech-DisplayPort-Video-Adapter-Converter/dp/B001RPCZL4

    What monitors do you have? They may have additional ports aside from VGA. If not, as mentioned above, Display port can be converted to VGA.
