Default Y splitter Cables with G33/G31 Intel Graphics?

I'm running off onboard graphics at work, I'd like to extend my display to a 2nd montior, both will be either Samsung 193V or Asus V203H.

Anyone tried doing dual monitors off this G33/G31 Express chipset by intel via a VGA splitter cable?

A VGA splitter from the same VGA source should only give you a mirrored display. You wont get a view like an extended resolution monitor or Eyefinity.

GMA 3000 and later are *capable* of dual displays, it all depends on the motherboard.
