Geforce 6200 for 2x Displays

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey, made a thread over in the Monitors section, I'm adding 2x monitors to my setup.

http://www.overclock.net/monitors-di...ed-advice.html

However, now that I'm narrowing it down, I need some video card guru help.

I'm probably going to be getting 2x 19" Widescreens (max at 1440x900) for the side screens, with my 22" Samsung staying as my main on the 8800.


I was wondering. could a Geforce 6200...

...reasonably run 2x 19" Widescreens at 1440x900? We're assuming this isn't for gaming, it's for web browsing, email, word processing, and maybe watching videos. I'm only really gaming on my 8800 with the Samsung.

Any advice? I don't really want to spend over $50 on a secondary card, I'd LIKE dual DVI but I can't seem to find it in that price range, and I want to make sure it can handle these monitors without getting laggy on just desktop work.

I can run a 19" and a 17" well with mine (Not for gaming (But the 6200 sucks at gaming regardless lol) but general web surfing and youtube videos)

I'm not sure how it'll work at 1440x900 but it works fine for me at 1024x768 on both 19" and 17"

Well, I think I might go w/ the 6200. If it's having trouble running 2x displays, I can always just buy another 6200 and run that.

Anybody know if running an 8800 + two 6200's will overtax my PSU? (It's in my sig)

Note: I currently don't have any real frame rate loss running 2x monitors on my 8800, so I may just use the 6200's one DVI output for one secondary display, and use the 8800's second DVI for the other secondary display.

the spec sheet says a max res of 2x(1024x768) so you can't run your 19'' at the native resolutions.

Damn.. hmm. Searched on Google and found lots of info on 6200's running at 1440x900 with custom resolution settings, but I don't think I want to risk it.

I'll keep looking then. Thank you.
