Multi-monitor is supported on most Intel® 82865G graphics controller-based systems using PCI video cards to support multiple monitors. With the latest Intel® Extreme Graphics drivers for the Intel 82865G graphics controller, the integrated video can be either the main or the secondary display adapter. Multi-display is not possible with the onboard display and an AGP add-in card (the AGP card disables the onboard graphics).
