ferg,

I don't know the 9700, but the 9800 does support it. The big question --
how many monitor connectors are there? If there are two, you're set. If
one, you're not.

I'd download the latest drivers from ATI.

No that I read that, are you sure it is not a 9800tx? I don't remember a TX
version of the 9700. If it is the 9800, then yes, it does.

The ATI 9700 Pro supports two displays (that's what I had in my old
computer), but I don't know about the tx version.

Might take a look on ATI's web site and see what you can find there:
<http://www.ati.com/&gt;.

its a 128 DDR ATI Radeon 9700 TX ,no info on dell or ATI website,im nearly
sure it has TVout
shows up in control panel as Radeon 9500 pro/9700 although on dell invoice
it says Radeon 9700TX
i guess i need to buy some sort of adaptor to get hooked up to 2 displays
