Multi-monitor is supported on most Intel® 82915G or 82945G Express Chipset family-based systems using PCI video cards to support added monitors. With the latest Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator drivers for the Intel 82915G or 82945G express Chipset family, the integrated video can be either the primary or secondary display adapter. Multi-display is not possible with the onboard display and a PCI Express* add-in card (the PCI Express card disables the onboard graphics).
