If i wanted to connected 2 monitors to my PC how would i go about doing this? I guess that i'll probably need 2 graphics cards?

Thanks

If you go to Start - Help and type 'multiple display support' all the information you require will be there.

if u have xp u can just have 2 graphics cards and connect each to a monitor, this is a good solution but expensive, or alternatively buy a new multi monitor grpahics card, ur gforce 2 is quite old as the latest cards are gefore 4.

do u want both monitors for gaming?

I have had problems connecting 2 cards in XP but it is simple if your graphics card has DVI out on it a well as the VGA connection. Have a look on the card to see if there is a second socket out. If it looks like click here then you can do it with a converter if not you will need to get a graphics card that supports dual monitors.
