Inspiron 5680, dual monitors

I purchased a Inspiron 5680 and would like to add an additional monitor. Is it possible to either add to or replace the current video card to accommodate the 2 monitors? Also any suggestions as to what cards to use if it possible. Thank you, SH

I just hooked up my second monitor via one of the USB 3.1 ports.

Re: Duel Monitors

You just went from the 3.0 USB on the tower to the USB on the monitor?
