Depends on the card. Your cpu may bottle neck your video cards.

post your mobo and cpu info(model, etc)
or check and see if your mobo has 2 pcie slots.
if you were going to buy new instead of xfireing/sli, i'd recommend a single, more powerful card.

Ok this is what i am trying to do, I want to run three Dell LCD monitor my Dell D630 ran all three monitors using Startech VGA to USB 2.0 adapters. I know a laptop is ot designed to do this. So I bought a used Dell Inspiron 530 to run all three and someday a fourth monitor.

Mother board: foxcom G33M02
Power Supply: Bestec model ATX 0300 D5WB 200-240V
Intel(r) Core (TM) Duo CPU E4500 @ 2.20GHz

I plugged one monitor to the output from what I can see is part of the mother board
I then connected the other two monitors using the VGA to USB startech 2.0
Only one monitor displayed

Asked questions locally and was told to install a video card.

Video card purchased - used: NVIDA GFroce 6 Series I believe 256MB it promted me to download lastest version drivers, done.

Still cannot get three monitors to work, however I plug one monitor into the new/used installed video card and then using the VGA to USA I can get two monitors to work.

The mother board monitor output for the monitor does not work at this point and time.
I shut down the computer and turned it back on, now the mortherboard monitor output is working and by using the VGA to USB I can get a second monitor to work, but nothoing from the video card.

There is this message at start up, Attention: Unsupported video configuration detection.

This computer has an add-in graphics card but the monitor cable is unplgged into the intergrated video connetor.
To attach the monitor cable to the add-in grpahics card shut down the computer/plug monitor cable into the add-in graphics card connector and turn on computer.

I did this but the the motherboard monitor output does not work.

Any thoughts to my story?
