Looking for an old card that fits my needs. - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Just to clarify:

The OP asked for a PCI video card that does dual VGA monitors and HDMI. Such a thing exists? None of those linked will do that.
Does PCI, or even PCI 1x have the bandwidth to run HDMI? - and two VCA outputs at the same time?
And I'm sure he'll wand to run all three monitors at the same time - even more problematic.........

Fine, here is ops original question answered exactly as he wanted.

VGA and DVI-D which can be converted to VGA.

Then you can spend 20 dollars on a display port to hdmi adapter.
There is your 100 dollars you could have simply spent on a newer computer and had 8 times the performance of that POS p4 he has now.

Of course you could get a whole new computer that would do what you want and run rings around that one for $100.

Hey, I'm on your side!

Hello again! sorry for the late response, I've had a super busy week.

GeForce 8400GS PCI Graphic Video Card

That card looks like it's exactly what I need, but yeesh! That price! I'll look into alternatives, but thanks!

I find that extremely hard to believe, as by the time PCI-E (xANYTHING) became common, AGP had been the common standard for GPUs for years. PCI-E was also fairly uncommon on all but the highest end, late stage Pentium 4 motherboards. Chances are, if you have two types of slots on a P4 system, they are PCI and AGP, and PCI and PCI-E x1.
Yup! Here's a picture of the connectors on the mobo just to be sure. The rear of the computer is to the right.

That is a PCI-E x1 slot card that isn't too ancient so it could be used again in a future office style computer build. I'm not 100% certain if it works with your particular motherboard, but you may want to look around and make sure other people have gotten PCI-E x1 video cards to work with your board before spending money.
That looks really good as well, actually, but the price... eh.
I'd rather get two cheapo ones instead.
To the rest of your post, I'll be dual booting Windows 7 and Linux, both of which I know this computer can run just fine. I shouldn't have any issues with software.

I don't necessarily NEED HDMI, I'd just prefer it. I assume if it can output DVI and I use a converter, then it can output HDMI bandwidth, correct?
I don't mind using two cards if I have to, just as long as the setup works.

Heh, fair enough. I was hoping that rather than just buying a whole new computer I could get some super cheap cards to do what I need.

With that said I have literally boxes of old GeForce 8400GS PCI cards sitting around; if you print up a shipping label, I'll send you one.
Holy crap, really?
Would you be willing to send two just in case? I'll throw some cash your way.

I would visit a PC Recycle store and shop around. You can find old hardware for cheap.

Have you considered a USB display adapter?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100161018%20600413992&IsNodeId=1&bop=And&Page=1&PageSize=30

Most of the USB 2.0 ones claim up to 1920x1080. I don't have any personal experience with them, but they may be worth looking into.
