Hi everyone :wave:, this is my first post on this site. I am looking to run dual monitors and I have researched the idea a bit, but I am still not sure whether it is possible with the video card that I have. I am running a brand new Acer with a NVIDIA GeForce 8200 graphics chip, it is not set up for dual video, having only 1 connector, but I have found a DMS 59 Dual VGA Splitter cable.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me if this would properly work with the video card that I have, or will I still have to buy a duel connecting video card. Also If it does work, can anyone tell me where I might could find a longer cable than 8 inches, like 18 would probably work.

Thanks in advance. :pray:

Thanks very much, guys, for the info, very helpful. Actually, I am looking to have both screens show the same display. Its for business purposes, I want the customer to be able to see exactly what I am seeing, so there is no discrepancy in the price that I give them. Do any of you know where to find a cord that is longer than 8 inches or what I might need to do to make a way to have one longer than 8 inches without having to splice wires myself. Thanks, again.
