Hi,
I'm building an HTPC on the Antec ISK 310-150 , I am not a gamer, it’s more of multimedia, browsing & home computing. I want to experience the uage of dual monitor. I intend to get are:

Mobo: GA-H67N-USB3-B3 + Core i3-2120
SONY Internal Slim SATA Blu-Ray Reader Combo
Corsair DDR3 4GB
SSD – Corsair 60GB + Seagate 500GB

Can someone suggest me
- how to use a dual monitor with this spec. can I use the 2 x HDMI ports / 1 x D-Sub port for dual monitor ??
- if I have to use a low profile card, what graphics card can be used for dual monitor??
- Is Intel DQ67EP better that GA-H67N-USB3-B3 + Core i3-2120 ??

thankx

looks pretty reasonable for what you want to do.

I'd offer up an AMD A8-3850 or 3950K on an A75 motherboard as an option, weaker CPU but better GPU

usually you can dual monitor on the HDMI/DVI port + VGA port.
