x800 XT and 2x1080P monitors for office use

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
the question is as simple as the title.

Will the x850 XT 256MB DDR3 (another 256MB shared with main memory)

be enough to push dual 1080p monitors for office use.

anyone ever tried this?

is it PCI-E? if yes then its enough to run 2 1080p monitors for office use.
if its pci only, the bandwidth will be too slow.

I remember wanting to upgrade to that card from my Radeon 9800 Pro 128mb for Doom 3 lol.

looking at the pictures, it looks like it ha a VGA and DVI slot. and you're sure it's PCI right? There is an AGP x8 version as well.

then its more than good enough for dual monitor with office apps like MS excel or Libre Office.
You can even use adobe photoshop with it but with GPU acceleration disabled.

You could run two 1080 monitors off of a Geforce 7200. So yes.
