    Question Dual LCD monitor graphics card?

    Hi,

    This is an area where I'm really lost.

    I need to buy a graphics card that can handle two LCD monitors. A 20" running at 1600x1200 resolution and a 15" that will display video and extra Sonar panes (800x600). Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Jon

    in fact any dual head card will do. I use old nVidia GeForce4 Ti4800 SE, works perfect.

    Although I'm not using the resolutions that you mention, I've had no problems with Matrox P650, so I suggest that you check it out. It is also possible (running in analogue) to run 2 monitors and a TV out with this card, if you get the adapter.

    Well thanks for all your replies!

    I'm currently researching these models. Matrox seems to be the favorite among DAW users in other groups.

    I was thinking I'd have to get a card with mega MBytes. Apparently not the case...

    Thanks!

    I've been running four 17" monitors at 1280x1024 from a Matrox G100MMS - picked it up in a ebay sale for five pounds..... it only has 8Mb of RAM, so don't fret, memory isn't everything.

    However, I've now upgraded to two 24" runnning 1600x1200 and a single 19" running 1280x1024, so I was forced to upgrade..... to a G450MMS..... with 64Mb of RAM....... Ebay again, £40.... go figure!
