Hello again guys, Im wondering if i can run two monitors, at the moment i have the Radeon Sapphire HD5670 graphics card, and the ASUS M4A78LT-M LE motherboard, is it possible for me to use the Sapphire HD and the onboard graphics to have 2 VGA/DIV monitors? I dont really want to run a VGA and a HD from my Sapphire because HD monitors are abit expensive for me at the moment, and i just want to dual screen, so cheapist is the best :) 

Cheers guys

No, as far as I know there is no way to run both integrated and dedicated graphics in the same time except you use dual graphics or optimus. So you may choose 3 ways, get two adapters like this:

(need to confirm if somebody tried this yet, I haven't and I don't know)
Or an adapter of your empty Display Port to VGA (according to the website, you have one display port):

Or get the cheapest new HDMI monitor:

(I need to confirm since I have never tried these, I usually buy the monitor that I have the interface to, but the third is best)

Yes,

You probably can use the onboard and a discrete board at the same time.

I have built several workstations using the built in graphics as the boot and command
screen and have two hi-res monitors connedted to my discrete card for editing and drawing. Most good mother boards allow this option including ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI ........
