I am currently using a Dell P1110 21" CRT, but I have a spare HP 17"
CRT.
My video card has DVI, S-VIDEO, and 15-pin mini D-Sub (which both
moniters use)
Can I buy a splitter or something to hook them both up??

Thanks,

My video cards that have DVI connectors also came with
a DVI-to-VGA converter. If I plug two monitors into the
two connectors, the Nvidia drivers and/or Windows XP
automatically detect this and activate the DualView mode.

I go a step further and turn on NView, which gives a few
useful options not in the default DualView mode.
