Video card recommendation

I am building a i7 920 configuration which I am going to use primarily for Programming, Wed development, Surfing. NO gaming at all.

I need a video card where I can connect two 23 inch monitors.

Please recommend a card that will do that.


I am looking at ASUS EN9600GSO/HTDP/384M GeForce 9600 GSO 384MB 192-bit DDR3 PCI - $35 AR
Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card - Retail http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...6814121319

opinions pls!

  1. To my knowledge, even an ATI 4350 can do that. Here is a good one with free shipping. You simply need a HDMI to DVI cable if your 2nd monitor doesn't take HDMI input.

    Thanks! How would you compare this card with

    ASUS EN9600GSO/HTDP/384M GeForce 9600 GSO 384MB 192-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card - - $35 AR http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121319

    It has two DVI's. btw, my monitor does not have HDMI.
  3. Here's a couple inexpensive GPU's that have dual DVI outputs:

    POWERCOLOR AX3650 512MD2 Radeon HD 3650 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Retail
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131084 $39.99 - $10 MIR

    SAPPHIRE 100236L Radeon HD 3650 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Retail

  4. The GSO is more powerful I think, but for the use you have for it, it won't change a thing. However, it would save you the trouble of the HDMI to DVI cable (but it cost more and you have to pay shipping). In the end, either way will work just fine.

    That has 2 DVI ports (in case you don't want to buy the adapter) and it costs 40$ with MIR. I just bought one recently, and it works flawlessly in a 600$ build with an Intel C2D.
    Just my suggestion, in case you want to stick with Nvidia.
