    Hi,

    I currently want to connect a 2nd monitor to my computer. My graphics card has one VGA output, which is what my main monitor is connected to, and an HDMI output too.

    The other monitor I have only has a VGA input, I'm wondering if there's a cable or converter I can get so that I can connect my 2nd VGA monitor to the HDMI output?

    Thanks

    Ryan

    I think,as your 2nd monitor is not hdmi compatable then your hdmi out form your computer may not give hi def capabilities.
    You can get a converter transcoder here http://www.amazon.co.uk/HDfury-1080P-HDMI-Converter-Transcoder/dp/B000SOPWS8 that might do the trick. Could be right for your situation.
    Please hang around here and see if anyone else can chip in with suggestions.

    I'm not after HD specifically, I just want it to run the same quality as my first monitor
