OK so, I have an HP desktop with one 1 VGA, no DVI....

I have 2 monitors... Both have VGA & DVI... I am trying to connect the two together, but ive come to realize, you cant do VGA to the computer, then DVI from monitor to monitor (lol bare with me plz)... SO if I bought this, http://www.amazon.com/Plugable-Multiple-Displays-2048x1...

would I be able to go UBS to DVI/VGA, straight to monitor... or will i have to buy a new video card?

Please help, i need dual monitors for work next week

Thanks for reading

It looks like it will do the job based on the description.

A new video card should be less money and less hassle. What computer do you have and do you know if it has a PCI-e slot?

Which model number?

I wasn't going to recommend a "high end" video card since I stated a new video cards will cost less than the converter.
