Default Dual monitors: 1 via onboard, 1 via AGP card

Is this possible?

Im having trouble getting the one connected to the onboard one to work, the motherboard is what came with a dell gx260.

thanks in advance

You can't use onboard and video card at the same time. You'll need a video card with dual outputs.

Some one else said they had done this, but it depends on their motherboard. Can you confirm this, or is he lieing.

Don't think you can do it with the onboard,But you can run more than 1 vid card if you set it up right

There might be an option in the BIOS to use onboard and PCI video, but that depends..
