    Hi there, after a bit of advice ....

    I want to send my HCPC's VGA output (ATI 8500DV) to 2 monitors so I've been looking at various VGA splitting/distribution devices.

    HOWEVER, I had a think about this and my motherboard actually has built-in nvidia graphics.
    Can I use the two VGA outputs simultaneously?
    What configuration would I need to do in XP?
    Any limitations on software such as PowerStrip

    Cheers!

    You cant use your onboard graphics card to do dual display, as it gets automaticially disabled when you insert a graphics card into the agp slot. Its one or the other im afraid.
