I am trying to install VisionTek ATI Radeon 3450 512 DDR2 PCI video cards on a number of GX60 and Gx260 desktops so that I can have two VGA outputs for dual monitor and extended desktop support. I cross referenced with the compatibility on these systems on dell's website and they state it should work fine.

However, when I install the PCI video cards into the systems, both the onboard and the new PCI video fail to output anything. This happens on all of the systems and I have tried with different video cards so I know its not a bad card.

What I am doing wrong here? How can I make sure that both can work together?

Just to clarify, I am NOT trying to install MULTIPLE cards to each system, but rather just one card per system, so there will be a total of 2 VGA ports per system (onboard + new PCI card)

You might try changing the video card priority in BIOS to "PCI" before installing the cards. I've seen some systems that wern't smart enough to do this when you install a PCI video card.
