    Hi

    I am looking for a graphics card to fit in a low profile desktop. The only problem is that i need to have two dvi connections to drive the display that the machine is going to be connected to.

    Does any one know if they even exist? If so can anyone recommend one?

    Thanks
    Orphy

    What purpose? If only desktop (2D) use then there are lots of options, e.g. nVidia Quadro4 NVS 280 or matrox. They only do up to Maximum digital resolution 1280x1024 on DVI however. THAT SUCKS. Apparently they can drive VGA at 1600x1200 though.

    Are you sure? That is HUGE. Usually only specialist medical displays go that big. Otherwise, cinema 30" is about as big as you can go, 2560x1600. You need to find a DUAL-LINK GPU which is different from a two DVI connections GPU.

    I may be wrong but this is going in a machine that a vets are using and that is what he told me. I will check it out.
