Geforce 8500 gt Dual Monitors
Hi, I have a GeForce 8500 GT. It has a vga and a dvi-i female plugs out of it. I have just got 2 Dell monitors with both vga and dvi-D outlets on them. 1. Does my card enable me to have dual monitors and 2. How the heck do I do this if it can? Thank you thank you thank you.

you can use dual monitors by plugging in the cables into both monitors then go into nvidia control panel click setup multiple displays and you can select what you want as primary and secondary display and whether you want them to be extend desktop or independant :)

You mean I can plug 1 monitor in to DVA analogue and the other monitor into DVI-d digital and they will both work the same?
