I would like to buy a 28"+ monitor with 1920x1200 or more resolution and will use it side by side with my current one. I would also like the new monitor to have an HDMI input, so that I can watch TV online (with sound).
I know that I need to buy a new video card to support 2 monitor configuration and I have narrowed down a EVGA 01G-P3-N959TR GeForce 9500 GT 1GB DDR2 PCI-Express 2.0 Graphics Card so far.
I'm looking at a budget solution and do not play games on PC that much, just internet, videos, multimedia, picture editing, video editing etc.
Here are my questions:
- Have I selected a good enough video card for my needs? I need to know if it will support 2 monitors and HDTV output. If not, please explain why and provide an alternate choice.
- The video card does not provide an HDMI output for watching online TV (Hulu, YouTube etc.). Should I be looking for a video card with an HDMI output and 2 DVI outputs? If yes, what are my choices?
