    Hi Guys,

    I have an onboard graphics card (i5 platform) and want to know if I can use dual monitors on the onboard? Please explain this to me since I don't understand these new things.

    Thank you,

    Mary Wells

    The documentation for your motherboard should tell you if you can. I have an asrock board with on board, and I have dual monitors connected. One output is DVI to my wide screen LCD, the other is VGA to my standard LCD.

    It has D-Sub + DVI and also an HDMI port. Does that help?
