View Full Version : sub $100 Video Card with dual monitor support?
11-18-2002, 06:22 PM
I currently have 2 15" LCD (NO DVI). Wanted to find out if there is a sub $100 card with dual monitor support. I suppose I will have to invest in a DVI to VGA adapter. If there is not a good card in that price range, what would be the next step up??

I bought a GeForce4 MX card not too long ago for $100 from pcclub.com. It has dual monitor support and it is a very impressive gaming card for the price. I was playing Return to Castle Wolfenstein on it and it was beautiful.
Check it out:
The picture only shows one VGA but the specs say two. I can verify, it has 2.

i got a radeon 7000 in july for pretty cheap. one's DVI and the other is VGA. found an adaptor on ebay for cheap. for both, including shipping, i got it for <$60. i'm satisfied, but not much of a gamer card like the MX440. i would have gotten that if it were cheaper.

R8500LE gets my vote!

I finally ordered the Radeon 8500 LE 128 MB, manufactured by sapphire. Got it for $94 shipped from newegg. Now hopefully it will come with a DVI to VGA converter; saving me a trip to Frys.
Thanks for all your help.

The 128MB R8500LE doesn't have DVI port! It only comes with S-video. The 64MB R8500LE comes with both!
