Best video card for dual monitors using 800x600 resolution

I am looking for the Best video card for dual monitors using 800x600 resolution. The motherboard is Asus P8Z77-V LK.

We use 17-in monitors set to 800x600 which is best for our business use.

Win XP is the OS.

Thanks in advance!

you didn't provide information like what apps you run most of the time. at 800x600, you are probably running a web browser, email client and basic apps... nothing heavy.

Assuming that is true, almost any dual monitor graphics card with a nice processor and onboard ram will provide good service.

Here is an article that should help

I can see from the specifications on the motherboard you listed above - Asus P8Z77-V LK that not only does it have integrated graphics, you have multiple video connectors already available to you.

You shouldn't require an additional graphics card to do what you want.  It may be a matter of getting the right connectors to support your monitors. eg. DVI to VGA etc...

That's an Ivy Bridge with HD4000 => it will support 3 displays at once, so you do NOT need a video card to do what you want :-)
