    Could someone recommend a good graphic's card to buy in the UK to view 2 monitors at the same time.
    I nearly bought the radeom 8500DV but at the last minute I discovered it can only support either 1 CRT monitor and TV out together or 1 DVI and TV out together and not CRT and DVI together so it would be something at that price range or cheeper.

    thanks.

    My Radeon 7500 can display on VGA and DVI at the same time. I have no experince with TV-out.

    I am surprised that the 8500 is not the same ?

    Not sure how much the Radeon was but I do know that something like the Creative Labs Ti4400 can output to 2 monitors. You just need to buy a doggle to enable this. Check out this site, they have plenty or reviews and tests.

    I think the 8500 can its the 8500DV that can't because if i'm not mistaken there is only one output, DVI which is changed to VGA via an adapter. You'd have to check though, its been a while since I was looking at these cards.

    Thanks so far for the help.
    Has anyone got a radeon 8500DV that can confirm I can't get DVI and CRT at the same time as I would like to get one that I can plug my TFT monitor into the RGB and my Panasonic Projector into the DVI using the DVI to RGB convertor or is there another card type that I can veiw both at the same time.

    The 9000pro will output dvi and vga at the same time. I am using the supplied dvi-vga converter to feed a crt monitor and the vga to feed my projector.
