Hi, I'm am very interesting in setting up my PC with two monitors but I am very confused about which video card(s) to buy. The only specs I need are for it/them to run both my 19" monitors in 1600x1200 or greater @ 75hz or greater. I don't need any fancy 3D stuff. I've heard a lot of these dualhead cards are great for the primary, but suffer on the secondary display (not being able to do very hi-res).

I would also like to have a TV Capture card in my system, so maybe I don't need a dualhead card, but rather just two cards, one being the capture card/secondary video card.

Thanks so much for anyone who can give some advice, because even corporate websites like Matrox's, don't seem to have that much info on it.

Matrox 550 will be a good 2D graphic card for dual monitor setup. Matrox have the best 2D image quality.
