Graphics card for Viewsonic VX2235wm plus second LCD monitor
Posted on 2006-11-05
I just purchased a Viewsonic VX2235wm monitor and was disappointed to realize that my existing graphic card doesn't seem to properly support it. The card is an evga e-GeForce FX5500. The monitor is designed to work at 1680 x 1050.
I really want to drive this monitor at its best resolution along with an older Dell LCD that I run at 1280x1024. I'd like to use Vista, as I'm moving over to RC1 and like it a lot.
1) Is there a reasonably priced video card that will drive both these monitors, drive the Viewsonic at its best resolution and give the aero interface?
2) If I move to a new card as recommended for question 1, what are the additional power requirements likely to be?
