  • running two monitors for cheap

    At the minute, I have an FX5900 with TV out, and I can run my TV as a seperate screen from my monitor

    I have another monitor, and I would like to run them at the same time (both monitors)

    Are there any adapters for the monitor cable so I can run it off of the TV out, or any split adapters so I can run both off the monitor port on the back of the gfx card?

    Preferably as cheap as possible, without buying a seperate PCI gfx card, because I can't afford it, and couldn't justify the cost even if I could afford it

    TIA

    If I remember correctly, FX5900s have 2 monitor outputs. If you use a DVI to analog adaptor, you dont need to do that strange configuration, and all you need to do is enable mirroring.
