ooooooooook. Here's what I dug up from a few sites. The card apparently has a few problems with some games. But in today's world something has to have a problem with something else eh?

SOunds like a good card to get. I would compare the core clock and memory clock speeds to other cards, such as a 9600XT, 5900 Ultra, 9700, 6600, and maybe a few others.

Otherwise it's an ok deal.

I was just looking on Newegg for your required components, and I found this card:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150089

I think that is one of the cheapest dual monitor cards around, and it's AGP which will run faster than the PCI card. I know you said that you wanted a PCI, but you'd end up spending the same amount of money on two "lesser" PCI cards.

As regards your PSU, I think this one should be fine:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103935

But I'm not sure what else you will be running off the PSU, so you might need to get more wattage from a different PSU.

Hope this helps!

Yeah I know it only had 12A on the 12V rail but I mean he's not running a super computer on it, and it should fine for powering his system as long as he's not using 20 different expansion cards etc.

Bare in mind Fiercepc, the PSU that allenn812 is probably wanting to get will cost way over $100, espeically if he's after more than 18A. I mean I'm using an Enermax 600W Noisetaker with two 12V rails (one producing 18A and the other 16A) which is PLENTY for my system (below). If you're looking to only spend $150 on a PSU AND a dual monitor card, then you'd very lucky to get two decent components. Maybe off eBay but then it's second hand and you don't know what the owner has done to it.

Why do you want a dual monitor setup when you're only willing to spend the bare minimum on a card and PSU?
