View Full Version : I can't get 2 CRT's can I?

09-08-2005, 09:38 PM
My video card has two different connections (DVI and analog). I am wanting to get 2 monitors capable of 1600x1200, but after looking through some on newegg, I am noticing that none of the CRT's have DVI connections. I'm assuming this is only an LCD thing? So should I just buy a cheap video card that is capable of 1600x1200 so I have 2 connections for analog? Or, is there some sort of adaptor or something?

on more thing. My current card is a Nvidia GeForce 6800GT. Does my other card need to be a Nvidia also? The 2 cards will have different drivers I'm guessing?

im pretty sure if you want to use dual vid cards they have to be the same

You should be able to go and buy a DVI to VGA adapter to take care of this ... a second video card isn't necessary.

Just make sure the analog end of the connector is female, and the DVI end is male.
