Dual Monitor Card

  1. A few months ago several of you recommended the 3D Fuzion Geforce 6200 3DFR6200P video card from newegg.com. I bookmarked that product but it appears that they no longer sell it.

    Here was my situation...

    I want to hook up a second monitor to my Dell Optiplex GX280 that currently uses an integrated graphics card. I want to hook up 2 Dell 1704FPT monitors but it will require an upgrade to my video card. I'm not into gaming so I just need something basic that can get the job done. Can anyone suggest a good replacement for the video card that I mentioned above?

    You don't need a dual head video card to hook up two monitors. Any PCI video card will do - just connect one monitor to your integrated graphics and the other one to the addon card.

    You need a dual-head card if you want to do more advanced stuff like mirroring.
