multiple monitors off my vaio

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i've got a vaio laptop vpc-f1190x and i'm looking at this great deal for a dual monitor setup, two 20" acers with stand for $320. the laptop has vga out and hdmi out. the monitors both have dvi in and vga in. is it possible then for me to buy the monitors, buy one hdmi to dvi adapter and then plug one monitor into each of my laptop's outputs and have true dual monitor performance?

even better would be is there a beast out there where i can split the single hdmi out to two dvi in's to the monitors and have the graphics card recognize it still being a dual monitor setup (different stuff on each screen) and only deal with a single cable hookup?

any thoughts greatly appreciated!

edit: btw, it has an nvidia geforce gt 330m card

Yes, I'm fairly certain that you can do VGA + HDMI to DVI out for two screens. I've read it somewhere, but I don't recall where. However, I am not 100% sure.
