I bought a second monitor for my desktop computer. While setting it up, I realized it only has 1 VGA slot connected to my graphics card.
There is one extra VGA and DVI slot at the back of the case, but they are not connected to anything. And when I connect my new monitor to either one of them it does not work ("no input").
My first question is: can I just get a VGA splitter and solve this problem?I want an extended display with dual monitors.
Or, should I buy a second graphics card? Is there any other way that I don't know?
These are my system specs:
