    Always been a fan of the GeForce line, thus why I voted for the GeForce option.

    I think the ATI cards have better 2D image quality than NVidia's cards personally. Although that might be because until now ATI has been the only producer of ATI chipset cards. Who knows what changes will be made to the ATI OEM cards that other vendors will be making.

    that's very true - I've set up a couple of boxes with Aticards by Powercolor & the 2D was crap

    I'm very happy with my Radeon8500 - Ati Retail :D
    the early drivers left a lot to be desired but the later ones have made some drastic improvements

    Honestly, Dual monitor is not all its cracked up to be. I have set 3 friends up with dual monitor set-ups, (btw, matrox has the best card... it kicks the **** out of the radeon VE in every aspect, their two latest cards 16 meg DDR and 32 meg DDR I would suggest to you) I was amazed at the lack of quality in the ATI.

    Two of my friends who have it are considering getting rid of the setup in favor of just getting another computer for their extra monitor. The only friend who plans on keeping his dual monitor setup is studying in college to be a journalist, and he very often is comparing documents, or at least reading from one and typing from the other... So his dual matching 19's work perfect.


    If you plan on playing any new games, dual monitor will be a CONSTANT pain in your ass.

    I agree....
    Dual monitor is kind of like RAID 0, it's fun to mess around with...but it really doesn't do much for the average user.

    it is good for software demos for small groups - if you don't have an LCD projector.
    Or for some CAD apps, you can have your pallette on one monitor and you model on a another

    I have to agree dual moitors is a pain in the ass. I opted for a second comp to fill my second monitor. Lan is easy setup and if you dont work with cad etc its a waste of a pci slot and irq IMO:hammer:

    wish I could do that.. 'oh, i've got a second monitor.. I'll just build a new PC to use with it'....

    It's like the suggestion in the competition thread for the P4 cooler. Someone didn't want it cos then they'd have to build a P4 system to use it.. I don't understand some people...
