Basically I need a good GPU for to watch DVDs on a projector.
I'm doing audio work so quiet quiet is really important.
Here are the specs:
1) I think I need dual link DVI and I think true HDCP (to ensure compatibility with Blue Ray or HD DVDs).
2) I need for this GPU to be FANLESS.
3) PCIe format
4) Output to two 24 in monitors and a projector (not at the same time). I may also in the future get dual 30 inchers.
5) 2560x1600 resolution
7) Windows XP
I have no idea if I need HDMI! Please clue me in.
FYI I may do some very limited CAD drawings.
Budget , no worries I just don't it to be overkill and loaded up with useless bells and whistles for my application.
While I am at it any suggestions on a nice projector (under $2000) would be appreciated as well. HD compatible super quality, future proof once again for the the HD/BR DVD.
Again while I'm at it some suggestions for good quality 24 inch LCDs would be super.
Dell's 24 incher is widely regarded as one of the best 24 inch LCD's. I think gateway makes a 24 inch panel that's identical to the dell as well.
As for projectors... that's tough. A lot of LCD's projectors have a low native resolution, so don't count on getting a 2560x1600 projector for a low price. To be honest, I'm not even sure that one exists. I'm too lazy to look.
