  1. Gentlemen,
    I have HP 1320 1G ram with ATI radeon xpress200 chipset and one blue output for a monitor think it is called vga .
    I would like to add a second( third) monitor, never done it, want to learn how to do it. I just want a basic card, I never play games or watch dvd on this pc and I am concerned about power consumption of the video card.
    I have a few questions:
    1) What card is compatible with ATI radeon chipset ?
    2) I saw some dual cards on Amazon and they have one blue output. If I install the card with one output, I will be using old output for 1 monitor and the new card output for another?
    3) Other cards have 2-3 outputs , blue, white and TV round one.
    Do I need a card with 2 blue outputs?
    4) Do i need to upgrade power supply?
    5) Is the quad card better then 2 dual card and how much power it needs?
