I need some advice on the best video card for a triple monitor setup.

Motherboard: Asus P8 Z77-V.

The monitors will not be used for gaming - only for large PDF files and and a Windows app that require a lot of memory.

Must be Windows XP compatiable...

Thanks!

Hi,

You should post more information, like supported connectors on the monitors, needed resolution, price limit, ...
I doubt that you are prepared to spend 5.000$ on it.
That Windows app, you have mentioned, requires a lot of video memory or computer memory?

Supported connectors: VGA & DVI.

2 monitor resolutions will be 800x600 and 1 monitor will 1024×768. Reason for this - the windows app is built to fit 800x600.

That Windows app, you have mentioned, requires a lot of video memory or computer memory?
>>Probably computer memory. Not sure, the most memory used will be for viewing large PDF Structural plans.

Price limit: $200.00

Regarding the information, I would say that you don't need video card beast. Any graphic card in 50-100$ range would suffice.
Regarding the video card processors you have two options - AMD (Ati) or Nvidia. I prefer Nvidia cards as I find drivers a little bit more stable.
As you have Asus MB, I would also choose Asus video card, although it is not necessary.
Another thing I look on graphic card is passive cooling. I hate fans on them, but it will be difficult to find one with faster processors.
Under 200$ you should be able to find A video card with GTX660 or AMD HD 7870 processor.

I would choose something like this:

This one has 2x dvi and 1x vga and 1x HDMI connector.
