Some/most video cards from Nvidia and ATI support dual monitors.

To hook up your NTSC monitor (or TV) you could hook it up to your deck (or camcorder acting as a deck). In Vegas you should click the firewire preview box.

actually both nv+ati support dual monitors via software. let's say you have a video card installed on agp port. you can just install a pci version and voila, instant dual monitor. just have to d/l latest drivers =D

Don't need a second video card to do dual monitors. Just connect the second monitor via the DVI or Analog port and configure it in Nview (if your using an Nvidia card). Running two 17" NEC lcds now. Desktop is spanned across both @ 2560x1024. Works like a charm, all on one video card.

I know as far as Nvidia is concerned all their cards from at least a year ago (maybe earlier) to present have this funtion built in. "Nview" is automatically an included feature of all detonator drivers, thus all cards support it.
The last time I saw an Nvida card that didn't support dual monitors was my old Gforce 2 from 3 years ago.

OK, thanks for all details but what I'm missing is the physical connection of the monitors to the VGA slot. Where the first monitor connects?
Does the card have 2 connectors so you connect 2 monitors?
Otherwise I know most of the modern cards support this function.
Sorry for the ignorance.

Yes, modern Nvidia cards have two connections..one for analog (CRTs) and one DVI (for LCDs). I actually have two LCDs that, oddly enough, connect via an analog interface. Just plugged the first one into the analog port and the second into the DVI via a DVI to Analog adapter that was conveniently included with my videocard when I bought it. Once in windows right click go to Properties> Settings Tab> Advanced> Nview. Click the button that states "span desktop horizontally" and POOF your done. The newest Nvidia drivers auto detect the second monitor connected and automatically prompt you with a wizard to configure your second monitor.
