Windows 7: Using integrated graphics with ATI Radeon X1300/X1550 Series

I checked the model of your PC at the Dell website, and it says that it does support a dual onboard/graphics card split. So you could theoretically get this working. I wonder if it's a setting in the bios?

EDIT: The information I can find on the Dell forums says that with this PC, plugging in a secondary graphics card turns off the onboard graphics. Here's a link to a relevant thread (Warning, it's confusing):

So I guess the short answer is no, your onboard graphics port is not going to let you hook up a third monitor on this particular PC.

Thanks for that. I'll read through it later. I did a bit of searching and reading myself last night and i think i'm stuck with the dual monitors, which isn't bad. I have a clone splitter so i'll try that to see if i can get the TV connected. One way or another i'll figure something out. Like i say it's just for streaming sports, save sitting in front of monitors watching. Thanks again guys.

The other port on the x1300 is not S-Video, rather it is an Audio/Video port for connecting up to a tv. It uses a special breakout cable.
