Current stock video card is a NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE
My ultimate goal for this computer would be to run dual 22" monitors as well as have output to a HDTV (connecting via component). Any and all advice on how to do this would be greatly appreciated.
I am NOT a gamer at all. Purpose for dual monitors would be multiple screens to assist and make job as an accountant simpler and quicker. Output to HDTV would be to stream movies and baseball games normally watched online at desktop to a 55" TV. Computer will not be used for other functions while output going to TV.
Current thoughts would be to first upgrade power supply to something along the lines of Logisys PS600A12 (http://www.directron.com/ps600a12.html) and add a second video card GeForce 9500 GT (http://www.directron.com/n9500gtmd1gd2.html). I believe that will handle the dual monitors.
Next how to I connect to HDTV via component cables? Is it as simple as a Y-splitter off the second card, one to the second monitor then one to the HDTV with a VGA to component cable? Or do I need some type of adapter?
Thank you very much for your help.|||ok first off for HD you will need a DVI cable, if your tv does not support a DVI connection then you will need a HDMI to DVI cable http://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-HDMI-… or if your connecting 2 hdtv's together then u could use http://www.amazon.com/Manhattan-DVI-D-Du…
your graphics card looks like it supports dule monitors so you should be fine in that, no update should be required but you can always go to the website http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index5.as…
