    I bought that specific card as a cheap way into dual DVI, plus it had VIVO. As I'm not a hard core gamer, I wasn't worried about high end 3D performance. It's not a card specific to video editing, and I still haven't got an additional monitor. Infact it's sitting amongst all my other unused PC components at the mo (I'm now using the Radeon 9600XT I'd bought for my HTPC - again, just another mid range card!)

    The semi pro rigs use one of the Matrox range of cards: http://www.matrox.com/mga/3d_gaming/products.cfm for the best 2D performance and multiscreen support...

    I don't know how they perform in comparison with the Matrox cards, but I've heard that the FireGL series by ATI is a great workstation line.

    They're not that expensive in the lower end; there's even a FireGL version of the Radeon 9600.
