Need help setting up dual monitors

I have an older computer with the following motherboard:

I have a couple of questions.

1. The integrated video has two external monitor plugs. If I connect two monitors, will the computer be able to utilize the extended desktop feature? I don't want to simply duplicate the same display on both monitors.

2. Can someone recommend a good new graphics card to install that supports two monitors for extended desktop?

Thanks.

  1. Yes, you'll be fine if you just plug it in.

    I'm going to presume you're not gaming - you *should* be fine without a graphics card.

    However, if you do get one, you have to check your case to see if you need a low-profile card (back port half length.)
  2. Awesome. And yes, you presumed correctly that I am not gaming. :)

    Thanks!
