    I just installed a Abit Siluro MX400 and it works fine. However I do have a question. In display properties / settings is shows monitor 1 and monitor 2. In the advanced for settings it has a tab for TwinView. Now here is my question. If I have these options why is there only one place to plug a monitor into the vid card? Do they have an adapter that hooks onto the card? Do you need another card? Or is this the wrong drivers for this card?

    Is there an on-board video chipset also? I have only seen this when there are two adapters installed in the same PC....enables you to have one large virtual desktop with two monitors.

    Hi RockN,
    Hope you are all ready for the holidays and have all the shoping done.
    Nope , no on board video. Took the old card out and also deleted all the drivers so it shouldn't think it is still there. Just strange as there is only one plugin and it even has a tab to inable the second monitor.

    Must be something in their drivers that add the extra tab with multi-monitor support.
