I am looking for a quiet, low-power, budget video card that supports two 24" monitors (1900 x 1280?) for a Windows XP system (PCI and PCIe slots).
In particular, I find it hard to tell whether a graphics card supports two monitors. Apparently "dual-link DVI" is not for two monitors, rather it's two cables to support one big monitor? A lot of the cards I am looking at have 1 DVI, 1 HDMI, and 1 D-SUB (VGA??) slot. It's unclear if I can hook up one monitor with DVI and one with HDMI or not.
How can I tell if a card supports dual monitors?
Examples I've been looking at:
- SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6450
- GeForce GT 610
- XFX Radeon HD 5450
