dual display with dvi and analog

Specs: Windows XP
At work we're upgrading to a few 26" monitors on some of our systems. This leaves us with a handful of the old 19-20" displays not being used. We want to use them to have dual displays on some other systems. The problem is that some of them are analog input only (truly ridiculous for an LCD display). My computer has a Geforce 9400 GT which has both an analog and a DVI output. Can these both be used at the same time? Is there any middle-of-the-road card with an analog and a digital where both can be used at the same time? Or do we need to go back to some old card that has dual analog outputs and use those instead? Or is it easiest to add another card - analog with one output - to these systems? I'd prefer to have the dual display functionality on one card - I've had a lot of trouble getting two different cards to cooperate in the past and I don't want to waste a bunch of time screwing with it if the difference is minor in cost.

Yes, you can use both. If the card has a regular VGA output and a digital one, plug the appropriate monitor in each and you should be good to go.

Check Amazon for the cards. Found several for under $60.

Cool, thanks. I would have just tried it but for the life of me I couldn't find a DVI cable. But now that I look around in the software for the card it does seem like this should be fine. Thanks again.
