    I got this card when i bought a dell 4600. I have been searching the archives but i didn't see exactly if i could actually run two monitors with this card. Should i add another video card???

    I appreciate your comments

    thanks
     
  2. Hmmmm, I have a VisionTek GeForce 4 MX440 (of course w/the NVidia chipset) and it is dual-monitor capable.

    Not to be sarcastic or anything, but have you checked the back of your tower? How many heads/inputs are there for monitors? :confused:

  4. I 'd like to see a comparison among offers from Matrox, Nvidia and ATI. Has anyone done this?

    appian also but its really an ATI card anyway?
     
  7. I believe the Nvidia chipset used on the MX440 is dual monitor capable, but not all boards built with it are.

    It's pretty simple to verify though - if you've got two RGB outputs on the back of the card, the card is dual monitor capable. If you have only one monitor output, it's not.

    I apologize but i dont know a lot about computers. So...

    I just saw in the back o f the computer and it has a VGA connector a TV out ( which is a circular connector) and what i think it is a a DVI-I connector... i got my monitor in the VGA so ... can i put a DVI-I VGA adapter and then put my other monitor...

    THanks for your help I really appreciate your comments
     
  9. If you have a VGA connector and a DVI-I connector then you
    should be able to run 2 monitors. You can run a flat panel with
    the DVI connector or go buy a vga adaptor for the DVI-I connector
    and run another VGA monitor. The adaptors run about $27 at
    your local computer store...
