Just looking for some advice on this, I realized I think I have an old CRT monitor in my basement I can use as my 2nd monitor, and another desk to turn mine into an L shaped desk. The only thing i'd really use it for is to have Superior Drummer, and VSTs always shown while I record. Any advice on setting this up?

Yep, plug it in and go. :yesway:

Edit: Assuming your machine has a second video out. Otherwise, check what slots you have open (PCI/PCI-E, etc), and snag a cheap video card if you need to. You can get a lot of VC for next to nothing these days, and since you aren't going to be gaming on your second monitor, you don't need anything outrageous.

Shit, for some reason I thought my current monitor was USB but its not.(What monitor is? :nuts:) I'm going to need an adapter or something.

*edit* If I just get an adapter to plug the other monitor into the DVI slot do you think that would work?

Upon looking at prices I think I'll just get a dual HD15 cable. Should be able to edit my monitor(s) settings to make everything look right.

So your card has an 9-pin and a DVI slot, correct?

If so, yup, just plug #2 into DVI. (Or vice versa)

Yeah, its got 9 pin, DVI, and an HDMI slot. Neither monitor has a DVI connector so I'm going to need an adapter of some sort any way I go with it. :noway: (Was hoping it was something I could get operational today).

Gotta make some modifications to the side desk or find one that will work better but its a start. Ill try modding the side desk first, its just a cheap desk that's been collecting dust in my basement (as was the other monitor :lol: )

(And by modify I mean take a saw to it :metal: )
