It is easy and inexpensive to add an additional monitor to your computer. Once you start using dual monitors you will wonder how you ever got along without them.
Having dual monitors allows you to run multiple programs at once that are side by side. For example, you can have your email on one monitor while working on a document on the other.
Getting a dual monitor setup can be done one of several ways. First, pick up a second monitor. While it doesn’t have to match the monitor you already have, we recommend this for aesthetic reasons. Next, you need to do one of the following:
* See if your current computer/video card already supports dual monitors. If so, simply plug in your second monitor.
* Install an additional video card that will allow your computer to support dual monitors.
* If you are purchasing a new computer, make sure it can support dual monitors out of the box.
