Dual-Head Video Card for uStation V8

Discussion in 'Microstation' started by André E. Slintak, Sep 9, 2005.

  1. I have a new IBM M51 machine that my IT department ordered an ATI Radeon X300SE for. This card does not support dual monitors. The machine uses PCI Express. My old machine used the Matrox G400 Series and it was great! However, it was AGP...

    I need reccommendations for a now hassle, High performance dual-head video card for use with XP Pro an uStation.

    i've had a lot of computers, about 12 of them at home now - but never
    an IBM. well, not since about 1985.

    assuming that IBM complies with the PCI-express standard like the rest
    of the industry (i would not bet my life on this assumption), i suggest
    an asus video card using the nVidia 6800GT chipset & 256 MB video
    memory. ($300)

    alternatively, a step down to the nVidia 6600GT chipset, i think
    available with 256 MB from Asus.

    why asus ? experience going back about 12 years, starting with a
    486DX2-66. i've looked at about 12 vendors who are selling dual video
    card solutions, aka "SLI". they all use asus motherboards, even though
    MSI and DFI are winning the awards from the enthusiast websites.

    on the ATI chipset side ... i suggest also looking at "anand's picks"
    at anandtech.com ==>

    he is currently recommending --

    "Sapphire Technology RADEON X800 GT, 256 MB"
    as offering good value ($164).

    as for how all these chipsets benchmark ...

    any chance you could help me with a question about concrete used in
    steel frame high-rises ?
