Using on-board video card and purchased one?

Specs: Windows 7 64B, 1.25 Ram
I have an older machine, a Sony Vaio desktop from around 2005/2006. In it I have an ATI Radeon X550 video card, along with the onboard card the computer came with. I've tried searching the internet, but have had no luck in finding an answer (most likely due to me not using the proper terminology).

So what I want to know is, is there any way to be able to use the on-board video card in addition the the ATI for a third monitor? It would mostly just get used for browsing the internet and MS Office applications, so nothing intense (mostly for looks and slightly for improved productivity).

So to sum it up, is there any way to use the VGA out on the desktop while at the same time use the VGA and DVI on the video card?

Nope. U can't use both of them at the same time. When v-card is installed automatically onboard video is disabled.
