I have a customer that wants to add 2 more monitors to his computer (day trader) and the only slots left are PCI slots, can I just buy a PCI dual card like this one...

and it should work?

He is running XP - older custom built PC. His current video card is an AGP dual dvi/analog

Thanks!

Depends on the board. Some of them you can run multi-graphics cards, some you can't.

I wonder if there is some kind of signal splitter you could use that might work if the monitors are all identical. Might be easier than trying to run two different kinds of video cards.

Well he wants to have a four monitors be an individual screen, not identical, so he would have four desktops. I don't know the motherboard model # either...I would have to take a look. I appreciate your help!

Thanks!

Hi,

You could try looking at DisplayLink, it allows you to daisychain them all together.

Cheers
