Jan 19, 2012, 5:59 PM

HD 2000 does support dual monitors, however I think it's with DVI+HDMI, not VGA+HDMI. I'm no expert though, not by far. I'll do a little digging and see what comes up, ok?

Ok, looks like you're good to go! Obviously you'll need to use the standard sound connection, as DVI cannot carry sound.
Parth, why don't you make a new thread and PM me the link?
