I'm not quite sure what card I should get for my desktop. I'm not much of a gamer. I mostly just program and surf so I don't need anything that renders magnificantly. What I need is a card that can run dual monitors as well as maybe an S-Video Port and/or Video RCA. The last two things I don't need on the card but would be nice. I want to spend 100 dollars max on this card which shouldn't be hard cause I'm not getting one for gaming so...

Hopefully someone here knows the best one around for this.

Running a 9000Pro here, happy with it. I have a friend who's running a 7500 with dual 17" TFTs at 1280x1024, that does a great job too. I think most recent-ish cards capable of handling dual-monitor will suffice for your needs.

This probably will sound newbish but when I look at a screenshot or pic of the 9000 Pro, I don't see two slots for monitors. Just one.

Same here. I run that setup at work at a higher res though.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
