We use them at work on all our agents PCs.  The card is probably an ati
3400.  Sam is right about needing a cable to split it.  It can be dual dvi

I have seen the vid cables without the spade pins in the mac world.  Have
you looked up the vid card online?  I think I have a dual head adapter cable
that looks like a dvi cable without spade bits splitting into two dvi ends.
