    I have a video card with a connector that I have attached. Does this mean that the video card is a dual monitor card and the attached dongle will work
    Thanks

    That's a DVI port. The dongle will only duplicate video so the two screens will just display the same things. What other ports does your GPU have?

    Most likely if that port is a dms-59, which it is, thats the only connector on the card. The DMS-59 is usually for AMD firefv cards, earlier Nvidia and Matrox cards. Basically workstation. It would be in your best interest to get a different video card that actually have dvi, vga, hdmi ports on it.

    It's an old Nvidia card. I can get that dongle for about 8 dollars. I just want to connect my dvi monitor to the card. It's a spare computer so I don't want to really buy another video card.
    Would the Dongle work and just use one monitor

    A dongle should work.
