    Default 2 Monitors?

    I was wondering if my onboard graphic card supports 2 monitors. Motherboard is ASROCK 880G extreme 3.
    I have this monitor - LG W2453TQ Wide screen LCD monitori - LG-ev monitor and I would buy another one like that.

    If my graphic card can't have 2 monitors what would be the cheapest and best solution?

    My computer configuration is:

    CoolerMaster Elite 334, black, (W)187 x (H)421 x (L)485 mm, 6kg
    Asrock 880G EXTREME3 - AMD 880G, AMD SB850, ATX, FSB 2600, Dual
    Processor AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition, socket AM3, BOX,C3
    DDR3 12GB Kingmax 1333MHz
    HDD SAMSUNG SpinPoint F3 1Tb 7200rpm 32MB cache Serial ATA II
    CORSAIR 430W, CX Series CMPSU-430CXEU, 12cm vent

    In your motherboard user manual:
    2.5 Dual Monitor and Surround Display Features --------------------------------- 19
    2.6 CrossFireXTM, 3-Way CrossFireXTM and Quad CrossFireXTM Operation Guide ----- 22
    2.7 ATITM Hybrid CrossFireXTM Operation Guide ---------------------------------- 28
    Section 2.5 has some restrictions that describe which ports can be used:

    1. DVI-D and HDMI ports cannot function at the same time. When one of them is enabled, the other one will be disabled.
    2. When you playback HDCP-protected video from Blu-ray (BD) or HD-DVD disc, the content will be displayed only in one of the two monitors instead of both monitors.
