Need to connect 2 displays to Vision Tek RADEON X1300256 card
A VTX1300256SFF was purchased so that a user could use dual monitors. However, there is no Y-cable type dongle included to split the DVI connector. Is there one available to buy? If not, how do I split the output from the card to two monitors?

You are going to need the Driver and support programs. Download them from Radeon. I don't think it will support 3 outputs but I have not configured that card. I know to do so you will need there software so start there. You can also download the user manual for the card from there.
first thing first ensure that you have the latest ATI radeon X1600 pro driver and software installed else you won't be able to get the desired options for dual display under settings coz it will be working with generic drivers. To download the latest driver and software click here
Yes, they both will act independently if you choose to use it that way or they will show the same picture, one is a DVI output and the other is VGA. Use the ATI’s CATALYST software suite provides the ultimate software required to enjoy the full acceleration of your ATI Graphics Accelerator card. You can use it to separate your Primary video from your Secondary video.
just look at your video card if it has at least a vga port and an s-video/composite or another vga port then yes you can do multiple display, if it has the s-video you can get an inexpensive s-video to composite adapter for those older tv's
ATI can get confusing. You might have installed ATI's CCC, "Catalyst Control Center", along with the display drivers. I suggest you download the latest combo-CCC and drivers for your video card. ATI comes out with new drivers pretty fast. When using dual monitors CCC is where you want to setup your monitors. After you set up the catalyst control center you'll find it much easyer to assign what monitor displays what. One other suggestion. ATI will want you to uninstall any other software for your ATI card even though all you have is ATI software.
