Currently I have a Geforce 6600GT Dual DVI

This runs a Sharp Aquos 26" LCD and a 17" TFT. In addition I have

Geforce 2 MX400 which just runs one other 17" TFT.

To be honest if you are happy with the graphics card you have in your=20
machine and you are not playing games on your second monitor you could

My comp at work runs a second monitor with a secondhand Matrox PCI card

picket up from ebay for =A32.50.
