inspiron 531 dual monitor advice

  • I'm have an inspiron 531, the usual factory setup, with integrated graphics. Is it possible to run dual monitors, one using the DVI and one using the VGA output, or do I need to get a seperate video card?
  • Integrated video chip only has the analog connector, so I would strongly suggest you get a dedicated video card with two inputs, one being analog and the other dvi or two dvi input video card depending on your monitor.
