Can someone recommend one.

Need it to be duel output (also produce music so need duel screens) and be good enuff to show pics in half decent quality?

Any recommendations?

If you aren't fussed with 3D gaming performance this one should do the job of running dual displays. Image display quality is pretty much the same across the board for photos, the more expensive cards are really about 3d gaming performance. This ones about £50 and has dual DVI output.

This one would be a better performer with faster memory in case you fancied a bit of light gaming! About £75.

If you wait a few more weeks ATI should be releasing their budget 5xxx series cards which will give you DX11 support, but its not important other than being slightly more futureproof.

Not to mention that the new ATI cards will support triple-output :wink:
