You could do that with an nVidia FX5200 or FX5600, a Matrox P650 will give you better 2D and OK 3D (about the same level of an FX5200), or you could get the card <A HREF="http://forumz.tomshardware.com/hardware/modules.php?nam..." target="_new">I justed posted</A> a link to moments ago the XFX5700U.

Ooops Wrong link! Sorry late night coding! :eek: 

<A HREF="http://www.xfxforce.com/product_view.php?sku=PVT36FND" target="_new">This was the link</A> I was thinking off (I'll link directly to the card, not my post).

If you're only casually gaming an FX5600 would be ok, but of course the FX5700U and above would be better. For the 2D part the FX5200 would do fine.

There are alot more dual DVI solutions out there from nV. Gainward makes some of the FX5200 and FX5600, I think.

Sorry about the mixup, hope that helps.

Yeah considering he's not looking for awesome 2D graphics quality (although why DVI then? Monitor restrictions, DVI-Only?) then the GF4ti series would be ok. I would prefer the FX series for the better RAMDACs, but since it's just for Excel and web browsing, and then gaming, it would likely do better than a plain jane FX5200 for that less demanding stuff. For Hptoshop and such I would go with the FXs though.

Wasn't thinking that way when thinking DVI.
