Well, my CPU fan started making kind of a wierd noise this morning, and I was thinking this system is getting towards the end of its lifespan, so I'm in the process of getting to look at some things in preparation for a new one. I was considering the card below. My question is, I run Dual Displays, can I run one display off the VGA port, and the other off the DVI port(via the vga adapter)? I can't really find any clear documentation on if you can use both ports at the same time.

Any help anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated.

IGF do you have any experience with that Manufacturer? That looks like one hell of a card for only 120.

I personally don't, but I've got a friend who has a BFG card and he's been happy with it(had it about a year)... I may not get that card specifically, as I'd like to research it a bit more, my question really pertained to if I could run dual screens off the card or not... I was pretty sure I could, but I didn't want to buy it to find out otherwise.
