Any video card will give you dual monitor. Video mirroring is more on the laptop and iMacs. I have a really old ATI Rage Orion ($99 when I bought it) running a 17" display on my dual ghz G4. I have a LaCie 19" on the GForce that comes with the dual. <br><br>[color:red]semicolon dash parenthesis</font color=red>

The GeForce 4MX should support dual displays, but you will need an adapter if you want dual DVI or dual ADC displays. Also I would get more RAM as it does make a hell of a difference especially in OS X.<br><br>“Here can be found the last words of Joseph of Arimathea.

<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Hopefully post-MWNY, there will be more dual options!<p><hr></blockquote><p>I'm hoping I'll get a run-out model at a real good price. The spec I'm aiming at is so many light years ahead of my current set-up that I won't miss the dual CPUs.<br><br>Think of it like this; I want Bollinger at a Heineken price. Unless I've made some false assumption somewhere, that spec gives me one awesome machine for not much dough.
