It looks like the package includes a dvi/vga adapter which you can use to attach the second monitor. Or, you could ask them to include a hdmi to vga adapter like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Once you have both monitors attached, right click on the desktop to set up extended display mode. Gaming will get directed to the primary monitor. m 0 l killercripple January 9, 2013 10:29:21 PM geofelt said:Yes, you can.

Yes, I think something like this would work: http://www.globalindustrial.com/p/electrical/A-V-data-n... But the simple adapter I linked to should work just fine reusing your current dvi cable. I see no problem with using a vga connection at 1080P either. m 0 l bigshootr8 January 9, 2013 10:36:34 PM Yea it would work fine with a vga cable but for quality I would stick to either DVI/HDMI both are capable of outputting 1080p m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
