Dual monitors

Hi,

I need to set up dual monitors for a uers with a dell with XP Professional and a single video card.

Do I have to purchase:

1. A video splitter cable?

2. An additional "regular" video card?

3. A video card with two output connections?

4. A "special" video card of some kind that I can add?

Thanks,
Bonnie

I've run in to trouble attempting to use a PCI or AGP card while attempting to use the onboard video. Just for future reference. My suggestion is to get a dual port video card. Then it's just a matter of going in to the video settings to adjust which monitor is left and right, etc. :-)
