More aboutwhat card dual 1600x1200
just pick any cheapest card that u can get, u don't need a high end card. HD 4650 is just more than enough..
Anybody know of some actual benchmarks of 2d performance?
I don't think they make benchmarks of 2D apps. I used a Geforce 7100GS 128MB while my other card was being RMA'ed, and it worked fine for all 2D apps. It even played CS:S at 1280x800 and low settings. I agree with wa1 that you should get the cheapest card you can find. A 4650 would be perfectly fine for office apps.
