Graphics card for dual monitors

Hi there.

Apologies if this is a stupid question.

I'd like to run dual monitors. Can I simply buy any cheap graphics card with two outputs (say VGA and DVI) for this to work? Or do I need to invest more than 25 for something to do the job well.

Thanks in advance.

...oh and if you have any suggestions for a particular card, that would be really helpful.

Hi,

If 3D applications aren't important and you simply need two screens to display for 2D work like Office, web browser etc then you really wouldn't need to go for an expensive graphics card and anything around the 25 mark should do the job for you fine.

Thanks very much for your reply Dan.
My PC is virtually exclusively for music production, no fancy 3D graphics needed. So I will plump for the CCL Choice GeForce 210 1GB GT2101GB which is only 20.59.
Once again, Many Thanks
