Most graphics cards have two monitor connections. Often, one is a DVI connector, which supports LCD screens, and the other is a VGA connector, which supports older CRT screens. Some graphics cards have two connectors instead. But that doesn't rule out using a CRT screen; CRT screens can connect to DVI ports through an adapter.

Most people use only one of their two monitor connections. People who need to use two monitors can purchase a graphics card with dual head capability, which splits the display between the two screens. A computer with two dual head, PCI enabled video cards could theoretically support four monitors.
