Re: How do I hook up a second video monitor to my computer?

Bob, welcome to the forum.


You will have to install a dedicated video card with two video ports; DVI, HDMI, etc.  The VGA port on the back of the computer is not available when a video card is installed.  The card that you choose must be able to operate with 250W.  This is the wattage of the existing power supply unit (PSU).


I like XFX, EVGA, Sapphire and PNY video cards in that order.  I like Corsair and OCZ PSU's.
