Any advice would be greatly appreciated, and if you Could be kind enough to link me to products in the uk More about : dual monitors 7950 BigMack70 January 10, 2013 11:34:17 AM HDMI to DVI + DVI to DVI would be the easiest way to do it... you should be able to pick up an HDMI--DVI adapter or cable for cheap online unksol a b U Graphics card January 10, 2013 12:09:53 PM Or you could just plug then into the DVI ports with the DVI cables they came with.
