Will this GeForce 9500 GT drive two monitors (expanded desktops)


I'd like to power two monitors with this video card, each with its own desktop in Windows (that is: extended, not cloned).

MSI M452-9502 GeForce 9500 GT Video Card – 512MB DDR2, PCI Express 2.0, DVI, HDMI, VGA – OEM

Is that possible?

Best Answer

From the page you linked to:

Dual Monitor Ready
This product supports Dual Monitors and has Dual DVI Ports. Dual View technology offers multiple display support on up to two separate monitors. This improves the capabilities and productivity of the user by allowing them to spread multiple windows over two monitors and view them simultaneously. Dual Monitors is one of the simplest, yet most amazing productivity boosters you can add to your PC!

The image shows one DVI, one VGA output and one HDMI port. In this case the HDMI port counts as DVI, though you will need an adaptor for your monitor (unless it has an HDMI input of course). Thanks to @quack quixote for putting me right on this.

Therefore, given the right cabling and adaptors you should be able to extend your desktop onto the second monitor without any trouble.
