    Default Dual monitors: minimum requirements

    Hi all,
    I'm about to add a 24'' monitor to my current 19'' setup.
    Will my Radeon X1300 Pro suffice to drive both?

    Please note that I have no interest in gaming, so 3D performance isn't an issue. All I'm looking for is good 2D performance and full Vista/Win7 support.

    regards
    Ze

    Well,
    I have a HD3870 and with 24inch and 19inch for gaming. It all runs fine and i am using windows xp. However, a friend has a 7600GS with windows 7 and it does not do well. Your video card is slower than the 7600GS and you want 2 monitors... unless you run things at pretty low settings you would not like it. I would recomend buying a new video card. Visit gpureview.com to help you decide.

    ok, so I should have to go for a better card (although I don't game). But since I have another monitor lying around I thought of keeping the X1300Pro, adding say a HD4650 and drive 3 monitors. Will this sort of card mixing work?

    no,
    the video cards have to be EXACTLY the same.
    though you can just get any video card for like 50 bucks lol it will be better

    I run two Samsung 215TW's on a single Powercolor 3650 Radion card very well. Nice priced too.
