Default Re: What are most current vidcards supported (need dual DVI for 30" display)

I think it would be easier to just have a single PCI-E card with dual dual-link DVI. Based on an earlier post you need a G80 series card which from what I have gathered is an 8800 chip set. Earlier cards had a virtual screen limit of 4096x4096 but the G80 cards bump it to 8192x8192. Those cards are around $300.

My question is do the 8500/8600 cards (G84/G86) also support 8192x8192? I can get one of those for $120. I don't need high 3D perf, just dual 30" LCDs.
