Hi, I'm having trouble finding a video card I need. I've checked online and been to a local computer shop and then Best Buy but no one could help me.

I need an AGP 4x card that will support dual 1920x1200 Dell monitors. Any combo of DVI/VGA is fine. The overall quality isn't very important, as long as it supports the two monitors and won't give me any problems its fine.

I'm also only going to be using this for a few months so I'd like to keep the price around $100 if possible. If its absolutely necessary I'll pay more though.

Can anybody recommend a card with the above specs? Thanks.

Will you be using it for gaming or just traditional uses?

I won't be running anything graphic intensive like games or movies. I just need the use of both of my monitors. Thanks.

This card should work fine and it's $100 after rebate:

If you don't feel like bothering with the rebate, then you could pick this one up:

Both have dual DVI ports and should run dual 1920x1200 monitors just fine.

Spend the extra 20$s. The 1650 is a far amount better and will have better quality for video feedback. If you can wait I recommend you do wait for the next generation of cards as they'll have much better video decoding namely for high definition content.
