Are there any ATI video cards out there that will allow me to do the following?

- have output from my desktop to dual monitors (DVI & VGA connections) while concurrently having output via HDMI with audio from my computer .

I want to operate all 3 at the same time (primary monitor, secondary monitor being my extended display, and then have my dlp tv have output as well if I choose to display my movies on it rather than watching it on the monitor.)

My motherboard is has the following PCI slots available and I'm not concerned with high end graphics since I don't play video games on my computer anyways.

1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x16 (PCIEX16)
1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x4 (PCIEX4)
2 x PCI Express x1 slot (The PCIEX1_2 slot shares bandwidth with the PCIEX4 slot.)
(All PCI Express slots conform to PCI Express 2.0 standard.)


Thanks!

Most modern ATI cards will let you to set up to 3 monitors, but you won´t be able to connect vga in to it (you still can use dvi to vga adapters for that purpose).

This should do it, sort of.

Hook one monitor up DVI to DVI. Use the included DVI to VGA cable for the second monitor. For the third even though it had an HDMI port to make this work you'll need a display port to HDMI adapter if one exists. Not sure if one does. I'm also not sure if a DP to DVI and then DVI to HDMI will work. But at least I know those exist...

Thanks for not explaining your reasoning. Do bother posting in my thread.
