I have a spare White Socket on the back of my MX440 8X graphics board. can anyone tell me what it is for. The manual supplied (ha ha) tells me absolutely nothing about the board.

Thanks

Do you mean the White DVI socket on the face plate? For plugging into a DVI monitor or TFT Screen. You can get a convertor to change it to a "normal" (VGA) one so you can have two VGA monitors running at the same time.

On J2K's image the ports are (left to right)

1) DVI

2) S-Video

3) VGA

Two monitors! Do they both show the same screen or can I run two different programmes at the same time. Also what is the converter called. Thanks

You can run the two monitors side by side for a "widescreen" effect. Yes you can run two programs at once...

I think the convertor is called a DVI-VGA Convertor (or "Dongle" although a Dongle is really something else....)

Make sure you get a MALE DVI end and a FEMALE VGA end. The MALE end has pins, the FEMALE has the pin receptors. ;-)

Thanks I now know what it is and how I can use it. it will be useful to have two screens at times especially when using a new programme. I can have the programme on one screen and the manual on another. At present i am using two PCs.
