I have a 23" Samsung monitor for my Dell Vostro 220s machine.

Unfortunately, the supplied graphics card cannot meet the top resolution over VGA.

My requirements therefore are:

Low-profile PCIe card VGA Output of at least 2048 x 1152 Dual monitor output

Are there any graphics cards that can meet these requirements?

Is VGA a requirement? Dongles wouldn't work? – Shinrai Oct 18 '10 at 21:13
@Nifle, Diago - If this question is not 'related to computer hardware in some way' than I don't know what is ;-) – Jakub Konecki Oct 21 '10 at 0:06

Hi, thanks for putting so much effort into your answer, unfortnately thought the card I need is PCIe. Thanks again! – Jon Oct 20 '10 at 9:02
@Jon - there is a PCIe version - updated the link – Jakub Konecki Oct 20 '10 at 15:02
