Hi I have a HP s5300uk, and I want to connect another screen connected. Do I need another graphic card? or what do I do?

I tried slitted connection but that only had the same view on two screens.

Thanks Tomas

I think that you may have some difficulty without another graphics card because according to your specs HP s5300 specs you only have one VGA port and no other graphics output.

Others will be able to advise on cards but you have a micro-atx and only 220w PSU.

You can fit a low profile PCI-E graphics card which will enable you to run two monitors.But as Woolwell has pointed out you only have a low powered PSU (220W) so it might be that you will need to upgrade that as well.
