    Hi

    Just replaced my 3 x 17 inch 1280 screens with 2 x 20 inch 1680 widescreen ones - Acer 2032WM - very nice screen!

    I have a Matrox Parheilia and unfortunately it only does 1600 over DVI :oops:

    Anyone know what card I can get with good image quality which does at least 1680 x 2 over DVI? Using AGP slot.

    May bite the bullet and go AMD64X2 though if the card is PCI-E.

    Thanks

    Gus

    Thanks Reznor

    Budget flexible, this is my work PC, I am self employed so spend up to 18 hours per day 7 days a week on it.

    Had a look at overclockers and a few other sites but they seem to miss out what resolutions the cards can do over dvi dual head.

    Was thinking about a 6800 pro agp at overclockers for £80 as a stop gap.

    Not into games, hence the Matrox Parhelia was an ideal card, may end up selling the 20 inch widescreens and going to 20 inch normal 1600's.
