I would like to add a second monitor to my existing Dell Inspiron 530 desktop. Can anyone tell me the type, speed of the card I would need? Graphics card, video card, etc?
Thx

The inspiron has an ATI HD 3650. That video card should have 2 DVI connectors. So all you need to do is plug in a second DVI monitor. You should be good to go.

You can also use a DVI to VGA adapter to use an older VGA monitor.

If you don't game and you just want a better video card for multiple monitors i would suggest checking out www.newegg.com and look for a AMD HD6450, at around $40-50.
