    Onboard video + Video card?

    I have a dell gx150 and it has onboard video plus a AGP slot and i was wondering if i could run them both at the same time? I would just extend the desktop to have road runner on my screen in the dash (left side) and have Fusion Brain software running on my second screen (right side). If this wont work I'll just get a second computer for the Fusion Brain software. Thanks, Drew

    I believe its one or the other. You could buy an agp card with dual outputs though.

    Not on this one man.
    Either one but not both.
    Get a dual output nVidia card. It's kinda hard to find one with 4X AGP and dual VGA out. I been looking to replace that TNT card that came with it.

    Even if you could find a vga and dvi out card, dvi->vga adapters are cheap.

    I actually have a bunch of DVI - VGA cables laying around, I think they're 6ft-ers.

    I think the point of finding a 4x AGP card with dual VGA/DVI out is tuff. Now aday, there are many dual output VGA/DVI on the market, but a 4X AGP interface is ???????

    Well i'm still using the onboard video, i'll just get a card for it and get a second pc for the Fusion Brain. What card do you think would be good for the gx150?
