I'm planning on getting dual screen soon, I've been told by my boss that its best to do this through a graphics card with two vga ports rather than through a splitter because that degrades the quality.

I had a look at my pc and my graphics card is identical to this: http://i.i.com.com/c..._videoPORTS.gif

Is it possible to do dual screen through the dvi port through a converter or is it just wishful thinking!? The second monitor is a 17" dell. (my current one is a 15" one with no visible manufacturor!)

sure, all you need is a dvi to vga adapter. They usually come with the cards that have a dvi out, but if not any computer parts store should have them for ten bucks or so. Once you do that, just enable the second monitor under your properties, or use Ultramon for more control.

I am currently running two two nvidia card this way for four outs, and a svhs out for running a tv monitor for video editing. Works great.
