An r710 is a bit expensive (and loud) to be using as a desktop. You need to buy a new video card though. Something that is PCI Express and supports dual monitors. My opinion is that you should sell the r710 if you're not going to use it as a server. Then you can buy yourself a proper workstation.

The specs say that the R300 only has two x8 PCIe slots, so you are not going to be able to use nearly every graphics card available, as they need a x16 slot. It's not a suitable server for graphics cards. Matrox do make a graphics card which only needs a x1 slot, but as it only has one port, you would have to make sure that the onboard graphics do not ...
