I plan on also playing games on this, something like hl2. I havent bought a new card in awhile, i guess i would prefer 256mb ram and it has to be PCI Express 16x. Also, the main reason im buying this is so i can run 2 19" LCD monitors at the same time, i have an adapter that converts the old school connection to VGA or whatever its called, so does that mean i should buy a really powerful card? I want to spend around $200, but i am willing to go up in price a little, but i dont want to spend over $300 unless its absolutely needed.
You already know that:
You want less than $200 (USD, I assume)
PCI-Express 16x minimum
DVI and VGA output
256MB of RAM
Do you prefer:
Based on that, doing a quick little search around a local computer store's website, I found a few ATI cards that may be good. The Radeon x700, and a GeForce 6600GT from NVidia. I'd do a search at wherever you're going to buy it from, and find the availability of their parts, and then start doing some searches at anadtech and pcgamer, etc. Read some reviews, find out the pros and cons for each card.
