It drives two monitors well and I have not experienced the black bug yet (I have not looked for it though). I know that this is the worst possible solution to the problem- Throw out good hardware!- but it worked for me. Ebay is a great place to find cards no gamer would want (low end cards with lots of VRAM) for cheap....
The bug still affects those cards. True, you might get many more open windows before the black windows bug shows up, but it's still there.
