Windows 7: Trouble with second monitor.

I`ve always read that when you use a graphics card, you can`t use the motherboard graphics at the same time.

If your pc monitor has a dvi port, then you`ll just have to go out and get a dvi cable.

I wish I could hand you one, I have dozens of em. They are cheap.
