hoping someone can help...

just need to find the cheapest card (PCI-E) that can run two 30" monitors (5120x1600).  i.e. TWO dual-link DVI outputs.

so many new cards out there i'm finding it hard to sort through them all for this requirement.

i don't do gaming so it can be as slow as retarded snails as long as it displays enough pixels.

thanks for the links... although i don't see how that second one could possibly run two 30" monitors.

thanks again, i did find your first link handy, but this second link again i can't see how it would drive 5120x1600.

from wikipedia (on dms-59):

Quote
DMS-59 supports two DVI Single Link digital channels or two VGA analog channels from a single connector. The compact size lets a half-height card support two high resolution displays

someone editing wikipedia obviously has a different idea than me about what 'high-res' means.

also from wikipedia (on dvi):

Quote
Example display modes (single link):
HDTV (1,920 × 1,080) @ 60 Hz with CVT-RB blanking (139 MHz)

Example display modes (dual link):
HDTV (1,920 × 1,080) @ 85 Hz with GTF blanking (2 × 126 MHz)
WQXGA (2,560 × 1,600) @ 60 Hz with GTF blanking (2 × 174 MHz) (30-inch / 762 mm Apple, Dell, Gateway, HP, NEC, Quinux, and Samsung LCDs)

so i'm pretty sure it needs to have 2 dual-link outputs.
