I am looking for a video card for around $100 that will allows dual display through two displayports. I have recently bought these two monitor HP ZR22W 21.5" S-IPS LCD Monitors with a stand, and am looking an appropriate video card. My computer specs: Asus M4A88T-V EVO series mobo, Amd phenom II 955 be, 8 gigs of ram, 500 watt psu, standard hd and dvd drive. I am running windows 7. The video card would be used for general office work, excel, word, some light 2-D or 3-D work etc. If possible, I would like the video card to meet the following requirements.
Dual Displayport output (I don't believe my monitors allow daisy chaining the DP's)
Around $100 price tag
Low heat and noise levels
I would not be opposed to connecting one with DVI-D and one with DP. It was my understanding that one of the advantages of DP was good multiple monitor support, but maybe that is not a viable option with my setup and price range.
Suggestions for video cards that meet my above criteria with a DP and DVI-D port.
The price I gave was the price I thought would be necessary to buy a functional card. However, I have been looking online and saw some cards in the $40-60 dollar range that have both the DP and DVI. Anything, in particular, I should look for in a card? I don't mind to spend my I had budgeted, but if I can accomplish what I want for half the price, there is no reason to do so. Would these cards work?
GIGABYTE GV-R545D2-512D Radeon HD 5450 512MB 64-bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card $30
I imagine that last one should work. the first one listed doesnt have a dvi port, or atleast the one i found when i copied and pasted it in didnt have it. if you arent doing anything that is very demanding of the graphics card, i think that these basic cards should serve you well
