That would do just fine with the exception of one little problem. The description says PCI, but the picture is of a PCI-E card. Might want to double check that with the seller before making a bid on it.

Ok thanks, I have just sent a question.

Do you know of any other cards that will do the job for around £20?

I've just had another thought... How does a splitter deal with resolutions? Will both monitors on the splitter have to be on the same res?

Yes, the VGA splitter will do exactly the same as one VGA cable, the only thing is that the splitter, well, splits the signal into 2 monitors.. but it'll display the same image on both let's say you're playing a video in fullscreen mode, both monitors will show the video in fullscreen...

Yeh I know this, but I meant could I set the correct res for the 32" and another res for the 22"? I'm assuming I cant but you never know!

Ohhhh good point, well... if the 2 monitors have the same resolution, well, there's no problem, but if the 2 monitors have different resolutions, then i guess it's not possible, because if you change resolution on (let's say...) monitor 1, it'll do the same with the 2nd monitor, since it's a mirrored image, was i clear enough? hehe

If you do you will have to use this driver for both,

ForceWare Release 95

as there is zero Windows 7 support for any FX5xxx series card, as Nvidia dropped support for it a long time ago.
