I use MS Flight Sim 2002 and MS Combat FS

My onboard video is AGP. Can I install a PCI vid card and then have two monitors going in the game. Or do i have to go buy a new AGP with duel head output. My budget is small.
I ave an albatron amd 2500+

Onboard video is normally turned off when you add another card.  Check your motherboard manual for a BIOS setting or jumper that describes what happens when you change that setting.  If you don't have one, it may be automatic.  What exact motherboard do you have?

Try to add a PCI video card. The on board cards are usually AGP which get deactivated if you put another one in the AGP slot.
Try it with a cheap PCI card first. If it works, go fore something like a Gforce 440 PCI.
The one getting the satus of primary card is usually selectable from the bios (init PCI or AGP first)

Good luck.

I have an Albatron km18gpro/km18g pro with Gforce on board. It is good for flight sim 2002 and unreal tournament 2003 and most other games.

I will just have to try different PCI cards. till i find one that works along side my onboard AGP. I think this might be the best if i can find PCI cards.

There are gforce4 440MX PCI cards in production, and their performances aren't bad.... But they are not very easy to find.
