Advice on purchasing dual monitor setup equipment.

I have a computer user on our network that requires a dual monitor setup.  Currently he has a Dell GX50 with onboard video, but some free PCI slots.

I know I will have to get an additional video card to plug into PCI - but there are so many different types of graphics cards/adapters that I have no idea what is good and what is not.

The user runs AutoCAD 2006, so graphics output may be an issue - but his current onboard video seems to handle the display quite well.  As far as DVI/VGA on the card - I really don't care, but I guess I'd go with DVI seeing as that seems to be the newer output and I want to remain current with the times, so-to-speak.

Any advice?

There you go...Matrox has been around awhile in the Dual & Triple-head market.  Once you find the PCI solution..head on over to  and search by the Matrox model #
