    Can this card run dual monitors?

    Just about to get a Dell OptiPlex 3010 with a AMD Radeon HD7470. The card has 1 x DP and 1 x DVI-I. Will I be able to run dual monitors (not cloned) on this or would I need either a different card or an accessory of some kind?

    Unless you're buying a monitor with DP, you'll need a DP to (DVI?) converter.

    AFAIK, it should be able to run multiple monitors, with AMD Eyefinity

    Monitors will both be Dell P1913S, which has VGA & DVI-D & DP. Just needed to check I could put one on DVI out and one on DP out and get a proper extended display rather than cloned?
