I need to know if its possible to have a dual monitor setup using the port on my MOBO and the port from my Graphics card...

The problem is i dont have a monitor that has a dvi cord... im using old CRD monitors... my graphics card has 4 ports for dvi connections and 1 for s-video... well im lazy and cheap and dont wanna buy a dvi-vga adapter so i need to know how i can run 1 monitor on my Radeon HD 4850x2 and 1 monitor on my MOBO...

Step by step would be nice or a simple yes it can be done look here or something...

Thank you all in advance :p

Well unless your motherboard has a S video display port. Your only option is getting another adapter. Sorry to let you down but....thats your only other option
