Just wondering if it was possible to set-up my pc for dual monitors using my pc's monitor port, and my gfx card monitor port ?

cheers.

this should be possible...you just have to go into the bios and make sure to re-enable the onboard card...

though...that card has two ports on it for the purpose of dual monitors....why not use the ports that are on the video card itself? you'll get better results

Ok that sounds great.
Secondly I'm seeking help setting up my pc with dual monitors. I don't how ever have the "VGA to DVI Adapter" that is required to run both monitors off my gfx card.
I've read a little here and there, I don't fully understand the process of setting up dual monitors.

your card should have come with one of those converters in the box....if not they're pretty easy to get your hands on at a computer store
