I have a 6600GS XXX card, it has a vga and a dvi port on it and some other one which i cant find the name of. I have my samsung sync master pluged into my vga port and my HD tv pluged into my dvi port, i also have a touch screen on my wall which i cant get to use's because there is no where to plug it into on my computer.

I've tryed using a vga y cable but when i plug my monitor into it along with the touch screen the picture on the monitor goes funny like a double pictuer. :? :?

Is there anyway i can stop this from happing are is there any way around it.

I am also thinking of buying a 7800GT would this be better for the multiple monitors????????????

My spec are
Pentium D 805
Hiper 580w psu

If you need anymore info just ask

thank you :D  :D

805 isn't the problem. A 7600GT with dual DVI's will handle multiple monitors no problem. A 7800 should be fine, but there are better card choices than that one, just look for dual DVI outputs.

I think you are referring to a composite yellow video card port. You can hook it up to a TV.

What you need is a KVM switch.

Just dont share the keyboard and mouse or do if it can save you sapce.
