    The Radeon 7500 would probably do well, but if you wanted a bit more power then the 8500 would be better.
    We should hopefully see some pretty dramatic price falls soon, when the 9000's/9700's start to come through.

    Does the rad 7500 and 8500 both support plugging 2 CRT monitors in at the same time or does it have to be 1 CRT and 1 DVI monitor as i would like to plug 2 - 15 pin rgb plugs in, 1 for my CRT and 1 for my panny.

    I've saw rad 7500 and 8500's sold on ebay and i was wondering do they normally come with some type of adaptor to change from DVI to CRT and if they don't where could i buy 1 and how much would i expect to pay.

    Thanks.

    I have a Radeon 8500 and it comes with a DVI to VGA adapter.

    The 7500 has one VGA and one DVI output and comes with a DVI-to-VGA adapter. I have mine hooked up to my LCD monitor and projector - works like a charm once you find the check box for "Theatre Mode" ;-)
