    Im looking to run a second display (plasma) from my pc. at the moment i only have the built in graphics (128mb intel 915g)
    im looking for a graphics card around £100.
    would i still be able to use the built in graphics for one display and the card for the other or do i need the card to run them both.
    i only need vga outputs.
    need pci express.
    if it makes anydiffence the pc is a compaq sr1219uk http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...n&product=442959&lang=en&cc=us&printable=no&#

    No you cant use your onboard once you have installed a graphics card but most now come with two vga outputs now anyway.

    I would recommend an 6600 or an X800XL

    Post links for these later when get a chance. :)

    X800GT

    6600

    Or click on the reviews link in my sig there are quite a few reviews in there :D
