As the title says really is this possible. As currently Im using an AGP card but would like to use 2 monitors and also have an onboard graphics card. So could I use both at the same time to get dual monitors?

Cheers

i think i am right in saying no you can not as when you install a new graphic card you have to turn off you onboard in your bios, if you want to run 2 monitors i would suggest you could get a new agp one

No, you can use one ot the other but not both, many AGP graphics cards have 2 outputs so just get one of these.

Yes you can have a dual monitor set up with on board and separate card. This is just one example click here

It can be a hit and miss affair but it is possible.
