Hi :) 
guyz I need the simplest gpu with two DVI outputs (I have two LG IPS226 1920*1080 each) .

I don't use photoshop or any other photo/video editing software and also I'm not a gamer . (I'm a recording engineer) .

my current rig : AM3+ fx8350 and 16gb DDR3 1600mhz with Samsung 840 evo 250gb . what gpu (brand/model) should I buy ?

thank u so much and sorry for poor English
:) ;)

if you're not much into gaming then go for r7 260x its a entry gaming card and can support HD multi monitor setup. I'm not sure if you can take advantage of the new "true audio technology" built in the card that can be used for your job but it is a gread addition too.

its around 140$ so its a great card.

thanks a lot M0kujin
but what about this one ? SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6570 2GB DDR3
a friend of mine has this gpu and he said he won't use it anymore. so it's basically free ! . but my displays have total res of 3840*1080 while max resolution for this one is 2560 x 1600 (Digital), 2048 x 1536 (Analog) .
Is this per port or total resolution of all outputs are 2560 x 1600 ?
thanks again :D ;)

6570 can support dual monitor setup but im not sure if it supports the maximum resolution of your monitors though. But that r7 260x can support up to 4k resolution.

I guess you should test that Graphics card of your friend first and if its not working as you want, just buy that r7 260x after to save money :)

Yes you're right
I'll try that 6570 first .Because AMD says : 2560x1600 for DVI and 1920x1200 for HDMI which my displays have both HDMI and DVI . but maybe I'm misunderstood about what AMD is saying and should get one those r7 260x s after all :D  :) 

Thanks a Lot man
;)
