that has a decent price?
Also what is a good LCD for gaming(once in a while) for around $500 ?
what's your budget on the video card please.
this is a good 17" LCD
and evey single 256mb videocard out there has outputs for 2 monitors.
I was looking to spend $200-300. I noticed the new ATI ALL IN WONDER X800 XT 256MB AGP. It looks like it has one digital and one analog output. Will that work in a dual monitor set up? Also, is that a good video card for $400?
best bang for buck card out there right now is the 6600GT for roughly 200$ It has 2 monitor display, but only 128MB.
If you're hard-bent on 256MB then you can go with the 6800GT or the x800pro.
stay away from the x800. it's an overpriced pile of crap. The GeForce 6-series is where it's at.
Don't be fooled by ram capacity -- that is NOT the deciding factor. 128MB of DDR3 is much better than 256MB of DDR.
If you go 2 LCD's something like this (click me) would work very well.
bwahahahahahaha u must be high!!!!
more memory = better (reguardless of speed)
ati is better at directx 9 (HL2)
opengl is better at opengl (Doom3)
take your pick, weigh your options. the x800xt is $100 less than the gf6800... on newegg the x800xt runs ~$450, the 6800 ultra runs ~$540
oh yeah and the 6800s require 2 seperate power rails from your power supply. a splitter will not do the job...
wow, you're a dumbass. So you'd rather have 512MB of PC66 than 256MB of DDR400?
that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard!
do lcd monitors give true color?
Most don't have dual DVI out though. If he is looking to use dual flat panels, he really needs that. Most cards have 1 DVI and 1 VGA out.
If it's one LCD and one CRT, then yea, most any card will fit the bill, and he should choose based on the performance of the card.
XFX makes a Dual-DVI 6600GT
Yup. There are a few duel DVI cards, but like I said, if Dual LCDs are his goal, he really should use Dual DVI, and that will significantly narrow his choice of cards.
