    Anyone have any experience with one of these Digital Video Interface Adapter? My sister inlaw want to run dual monitors off her current PC without spending money (unless its my money.) And she wants it by the weekend...

    The machine already has a NVIDIA GeForce2 MX400 AGP w/ DVI, which gives me on HD15 and a DVI. The documentation states "This video card supports dual output to an analog and digital display monitor at the same time."

    I am thinking just buy the adapter ($14.99 local) and save my money of a new video card? Any thoughts???

    $15 for a DVI>VGA adaptor is a RIP OFF! Shouldn't be more than $2.

    check a small shop... I always have a box of them that I give to customers when they ask for one. Same with SATA cables, power splitters, power cables, floppy cables, screws, standoffs, etc. About the only thing I don't have extra are 80-pin IDE ribbons.

    Ok the price maybe high, but I have limited time and supply locally (and $15 is alot better than the $100 the local places want for a dual head card)

    Does anyone have any experience running two monitors on this card? Using this adaptor for a second monitor???
