Just read about that software "Softxpand 2011".

But yes you have two options. The Geforce 210 can run 2x monitors on its own, as long as one of them uses the VGA cable and the other the DVI/HDMI.

Alternatively, you can use the IGP in your 2500 to run a screen as well, you may need to enable this in the bios, but if you connect a monitor to your montherboard before you switch the computer on, it may auto detect and enable it.

Bear in mind that if you plan to run games, you might struggle with the IGPU and the Geforce 210, both arent good. If you wanted to play multi seat games you will most likely want 2x good graphics cards and possibly a better PSU to power them (depending on what you have currently).

Yeah you can use your VGA port on your motherboard and use the graphics on your CPU, should work fine.

Plug it in before turning the computer on, so it can be enabled (the IGP). If it doesnt work right away, you may need to enable it in the bios. But the IGP in the 2500 can work with the Geforce as well.

I havent tried my self, but Sandybridge CPUs can use the IGP as well as a graphics card at the same time.
