hi all!

I recently bought one of the ATI radeon 9550 cards. Seems like im not the only one!!

All i wanted to know was if it supports dual monitors? I know the supplied software seems to be able to cope with this, but the connections on the back are different.

I am using the VGA port to run the single monitor just now, but can i use the alternate port (what's it called?) to run a secondary monitor??

thanks for your help guys...

Sorry to post a bit of a useless thread, but couldnt find anything on here about it!
