I am looking to upgrade my video card. I work primarily with 2D animation programs Flash, After Effects, Director etc. and use two CRTs. I don't game or use 3D applications so when I built my PC I put in a Matrox G450. It has two CRT connectors and has a good rep for dual displays. The problem is the seconary RAMDAC is running at 230Mhz so I get poor performance when running video on my secondary display and loose a ton of frames. I recently read the review on the Radeon 9000pro. It and it's competition have two 400Mhz RAMDACs so I'm wondering which card would be best for 2D dual display performance?
GeForce4 Ti 4200
Geforce4 MX 460
Do a lot of 3D max and other 3d stuff. You can run dual monitors on some of the Gforce 4 ti 4200. You can get a Gainwood ti4200 from Komplett.co.uk for £99 at the mo. Not going to get into an argument about which is better, just check out the reviews and decide for yourself.
