If a graphics card has single DVI output, but a DVI splitter cable is used to give two outputs, can the resolution be adjusted on the 2nd screen or is it merely just a clone of the 1st screen?

Thanks for your help!!

Matrox have a system whereby each monitor is different.

I believe you can theoretically do it on other monitors too.

Google for the particular card you're interested in, see if you can find out?

Thanks. I've googled the card, (it's a 256mb ATI Radeon X600 in a Dell machine, so it is the low profile version just with one DVI output). I cant find any detail on whether the 2nd DVI output on the splitter cable would be able to do a different resolution :-(

Not much info on the Dell site. I'd suggest giving them a ring.

If you use a Splitter all it does is clones the same image on both the monitors. I would recommend checking KVMSwitchTech as they offer a wide range of DVI Splitter and HDMI Splitter solutions.
