Will this work? (Dual monitor with AGP and PCI card?)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm not too sure how dual monitor works since I've never really had a reason to use two. I still don't for that matter, but I'm bored.

Right now I have a Radeon 9600 SE, it's an AGP card which my monitor is connected to. I have an old Radeon 7000 kicking around and I was wondering if I threw it into my PC (it's PCI) if I could run another monitor off of it and run two monitors at once.

Thanks for your help in advance.
