I'm currently running an AGP dual output card to drive my two monitors on my development system. I'm getting a new system with no AGP - just PCIe 1 and 16. The board has built in (shared memory) video - but I want to run two monitors (19" vga) Many higher end cards come with twin DVI - and its obvious that those must support two monitors - (but maybe not analog) Besides - I have no real need for that kind of card - I don't game or watch TV - I'm really boring - I just program!
But the cheap cards (and otherwise that's all I need) for PCIe all (or most) come with 1 vga and 1 dvi. Do <all> such cards support dual monitors? (using a DVI -> VGA adapter)
This MSI RX700SE-TD256E Radeon X700 SE when you go to the manufacturers site mentions
"Dual integrated display controllers" for instance. But some others don't. Some come with a DVI to VGA adapter - even though there's already a vga subD - I assume that means you use the adapter for the second vga monitor. This link is to the NewEgg page for thiscard: http://tinyurl.com/y3um62
If you have some guidelines for me to understand and pick a decent $50-$70 PCIe 256mg card that will support two vga monitors - earn some easy points and help me out. TIA
