Ok, Im a computer retard to start things off. never had one when i was in high school till now.

i want to run dual monitors. i have a
radeon 9600 like the picture shows. my monitor is currently plugged into the blue outlet. now, when i want to run two monitors, do i just plug the other one into the blue outlet that looks the same as the one on the graphics card, but is located on my computer? i dont need like an extra video card or anything?

You probably won't want to use the onboard video (the other VGA connector on the motherboard). Instead, you want to use the DVI connector on your video card. It's the white one. To do this, you'll need to use a DVI to VGA convertor, which is often included with video cards that have both types of output. It looks like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814999901

DVI=male, VGA=female

I assume you didn't get one with your video card?
