Windows – Is it possible to drive 2 monitors from a video card that’s designed for one

multiple-monitorswindows xp

Here is the situation. I've been given a PC at a client site. It has a single monitor, however, I'd like to have another one since my work would go much faster.

I've been told that, no, I can't add another video card. But I can plug into the box anything external. So is there an external device that I can buy that would allow me to add the extra monitor?

  • There is the Matrix DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go. They take the video card's output and split it to two monitors. If I recall they are rather expensive (a couple hundred bucks). So you end up running the monitor at 2048x768 and drive two 1024x768 monitors. You will be limited what resolution you can run by the graphics card.
