Dual Monitor PCI graphics card?

Posted on 2005-04-29
Last Modified: 2010-04-26
I currently have a 2 monitor setup using my AGP graphics card. I am looking to add 2 more monitors to the computer, to make 4 in total. I believe I need a PCI graphics card for this that supports dual graphic cards. Does anyone have any recommendations. It dosen't need to be powerful, the monitors will literally have outlook and one note displayed on them pretty much permanetly.

Thanks for any suggestions.

    You may be looking for an nvidia FX5500 PCI card then... tends to be the most power you can find in a PCI style these days.  It'll work with existing ATI cards too.

    If you dont need the power at all, you can add multiple single output PCI cards.
    I've used 2 old S3 Virge 4M cards with a GeForce2 AGP card to get 3 monitors to work.
    S3 cards are ancient but Windoze has perfect driver capability and they cost nothing !
