    I think 64MB should be fine for non-gaming work. Are your drivers updated?

    I used a geforce for duel screen until I got a new pc that didn't have an agp slot.....so I had to buy a new one.....a picked up an ATI raddeon 64MB card for 30 bucks...looks and works great. Now if your gaming I don' t know if 64 is enough.

    No gaming. This is a dedicated audio workstation with win XP pro. It said i had the right drivers. Soyou dont think it could be memory related?

    a good vid card for dual? how's about a great card for dual!

    Last time I checked, Matrox was the industry leader in text and graphics display. A difference in clarity that can be easily seen when comparing to many high end gaming cards. Matrox drivers are rock solid. The cards are highly compatible.

    I've been using a Matrox G450 32mb dual head for years, it excels at what it was designed for- not gaming- but high end graphics display.

    Its always been at the top of the list for workstations I think.
    But then I havn't looked into hardware in a while, 'cause my stuff just works too well.

    If you only need dual analog video outputs, the Matrox card I have(OEM Matrox G450 32mb) is about 89 bucks at newegg. A model with 64mb and dual DVI will cost a bit more.
