    Hi guys

    Can u tell me how to connect two monitors?
    I have one CRT 17" and one LCD 19" monitor....

    My graphics card (GeForce 6600) have two ports DVI and VGA...
    and my mobo have one VGA port...

    Currently my LCD monitor is connected to the DVI port and I want to connect my second CRT monitor...

    where should I connect this one...? in the VGA port of graphics card or in the mobo....

    LCD monitor is running @ 60Hz 1280 X 1024...

    My question is that is it possible to connect both LCD and CRT to the same system....?
    Is there any other changes to be done in the display properties? i'm using windows XP-SP3
    Should I need to set same frequency and resolution?


    regards
    dilip
