I have a brand new Dell Vostro 230 PC running XP Pro. It comes with an embedded Video card and works perfectly fine. The user want to use two monitors.
I have experience with older Dell PC using an AGP Video card that supports dual monitors via special cable and it worked quite well.
However, I know there's newer technology using a USB dual monitor adapter. I've set one up recently and got it to work but it performed clumsy when rebooting the PC. I had to play with it to make it work satisfactory.
In this new PC, I prefer not to disable the onboard video card and install a new video card that supports dual monitors. I would rather try the USB option again
Can anyone provide a recommendation from experience and as to what brand worked well for them?
Would it be a better choice to purchase a basic video card that supports two monitors and perhaps around the same cost of a $60-$80 USB solution?
