    Currently I have an AGP Radeon card and an old PCI ViRGE card. I wanted to run dual monitors with the AGP card as primary but it seems that this isn't possible. If I was to get a new card what kind should I get? I would like an AGP card with VGA support for at least two monitors, are there cards that can handle two monitors? What are some of my options if I have 1 AGP slot and want to have multiple monitors?


    Thanks

    Why isn't it possible? I run with a Radeon 9600XT and an old 2MB Canopus Total3D PCI card at the same time...

    Anyway, all you need is an AGP card with a VGA output and a DVI output, and you can get a DVI->CRT adapter to get the second monitor on. They usually come with the card, or if not, you can get them for like $15.
