Hello,

I need advice as to what 2nd graphic card I should get to run 2 CRT monitors in dual display mode.
My system is composed of an Athlon XP 1700+, an ASUS motherboard with 512mb DDR, a GEForce2 TI 64mb AGP card, running under XP Home.
This card will not be used to play games or any other visually demanding apps.
It needs to be PCI, fully compatible with XP (no 3rd party drivers) and cheap (very cheap). :) 

I have and tried to install a Voodoo3 2000 PCI using 3rd party drivers, but to no avail. :/ 

Any suggestions?

Your best bet would probably be a TNT2.

Definately the TNT2. Not the cut-down Vanta or M64 versions either, but the full version. Look for it on pricewatch.

What's the frequency, Kenneth?

Thanks for your suggestions. :) 
You wouldn't happened to have a TNT2 PCI for sale by any chance? ;)
