    Before reading know this: I know a bit about computers, but I don't know a lot of the computer lingo so bear with me if you can.

    I want to put a small monitor on my computers case, however my video card only has one slot for a monitor. Is there some sort of adapter that can split this so I can have two monitors hooked up to my video card? And if not, I have an older PCI video card that I could use. Is it possible to have two video cards working in my pc at the same time? One for my main monitor where I do gaming, the other for more simple things such as running utilities. Cooling shouldn't be a problem, but if it is I can take care of it easily. I just need to know if I can have two video cards running two different monitors at the same time without fear of some major complication.

    it should work but i would only try it if they are both the same make. mixing ati and nvidia would be a bad idea and i think it would be the same with mixing any other types of chipset
