    Hey guys. My mate bought a monitor a while ago for a budget PC but decided he was going to save up and build something better - So now he's wanting to sell this monitor he has. I was planning on buying it off him because i want a second monitor for my PC. Since i run two 7970's in crossfire, when i run games they have to be full screen and so the purpose of it would be for watching vidoes/livestreams and browsing. Here is the monitor that he has - http://ple.com.au/ViewItem.aspx?InventoryItemID=610907&CategoryID=296

    I was wondering, if i were to buy it, would it even be compatible and how would i set it up? Do i need a program? and which graphics card would i have to plug it into?

    My current monitor is a Samsung S23A950D 120Hz 23" 1080p Monitor.

    You can run 2 monitors without any extra drivers or software just plug it into your primary graphics card and boot up then right click on the desktop and select change resolution then extend desktop onto the second screen and change the resolutions to match the monitors and move them so that when you move the mouse to the right it goes onto the right monitor.
    Paladone says thanks.
