I have a dell optiplex gx620. It has a built in vga and I added a dvi card. I want to use dual monitors. Since I installed the dvi card the vga is disabled. Can you enable both at the same time? Will this work?

Dell has instructions on setting up your dual displays.

Once you select the link above you will need to select the link entitled:

I believe that would work. That is the process I use here from time to time.
