Need two video outs?
I am needing to run both a monitor and a projector and wanting to know if I can run two video cards? My current video card is a 6600 and has both DVI and VGA but can not run them boht at the same time.

I am hoping I can run a second video card and get both displays working.

Also can someone tell me which is better quality, VGA or DVI?

Here is my Motherboard if it helps with these questions.

if it has DVI and VGA it should be able to use them both simultaneously. perhaps you are not sure how?

edit: make sure you have the latest nVIDIA Forceware drivers installed. the forceware drivers are pretty easy to use for multiple monitor setups

If you want to run 3 video outs then you can either do it with a Y splitter (if you just want the same thing mirrored on the projector.

The other option is to get a cheap PCI nvidia card.

DVI would be better but it depends on the monitor.
