What do I need to run two displays (a screen and a projector) from the same VGA outlet either simultaneously or alternately?

Thanks

A Dual head graphics card is the best way
Mattrox Millenium range have this, but i'm sure there is proberly some adapter availible from Maplin or the like

The same display on both - or two different displays?

If the same display, you can get monitor *splitters* example click here - but you must get good quaity to avoid severe ghosting.

Many graphics cards already come with a TV quality second output - either as composite video or s-vhs sockets.

Thanks diesse. Yes I'm looking for the same image on both (as when I'm using my laptop) but how do I tell if its "good quality" - what specs do I need to look for?
