    Default Dual monitor video card

    Hey I have a quick question. I currently have a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700 Ultra card in my pc, but I am wanting to upgrade to a dual monitor card. Would the<!--StartFragment --> ATI Radeon 9250 Graphics Card be a good upgrade or not? If not what other cards would be maybe a small upgrade from the 5700 at a good price with dual monitor support.

    THX!

    btw i would like this card to be used for both gaming and video editing

    you should have one vga out and one dvi out plug on your vid card, you will need a dvi to vga adapter for the dvi plug if your monitors are both vga.

    If on the other hand both your monitors are dvi (I dont know because you give no specs) you will need a vga to dvi adapter

    To have dual view desktop you will need to go into the nvidia control panel and select dual view as opposed to single display or clone view.
