Hi Guys - I currently have an ATI Radeon HD 2600XT graphics card powering my dell 24" inch U2410 LCD @ 1920x1200. The card has dual dvi ports and I just purchased a Dell 30" 3008wfp screen (native resolution of 2560x1600)

For now, i want to just run my 30" together with the 24", but i might be getting another 30" in a few months, so if i buy a new card it should be able to run dual 30" at 2560x1600 x 2 smoothly, along with windows 7 aero etc.

My current card is overheating and making my computer shutdown. It's reaching like 120 degree celcius. I can probably fix it by changing the card fan or applying thermal pad probably. But i was thinking its better to just buy a new card?

I'm wondering if any of these two are good for my needs :

NVIDIA Quadro NVS 295


XFX Radeon HD 5770

I'm not much of a gamer, but mainly use my comp for programming.. Win 7 x64 bit, photoshop cs5, fireworks cs5, Visual Studio 2010, office etc. So i was thinking maybe the quadro would be better..thoughts?

NVIDIA Quadro NVS 295 will be good enough for all your needs as it was the fastest gc on planet before the arrival of hd 5970....i mean to say it can handle whatever resolution you want for your monitors...and its much better than hd 5770

You will gain benefit from Nvidia cards if you want to use a software like CS5...
Anyway, since you aren't much of a gamer then both of cards will do the job just fine, make sure you have a good CPU in your system.. :)
