    Default video card

    Yes I am greedy!
    I was thinking of buying a new video card. One part of me wants to buy a card with paint shop pro in mind that would support dual vga display. The other part of me want's to play quake 3. I'd want to spend about $300
    like I said I'm greedy
    Currently have a Nividia tnt2 32mb card

    I have a feeling that you'd be hard pressed to find a dual head video card for $300, especially one that'll also handle Q3. A cheaper option would be go for the best card you can afford, and then get a second cheaper PCI card to run your second display, as you won't need the second display to run Q3, just your primary one, so it needn't be as powerful.

    If you wanted to get a really good card for playing games then you could wait a while for the price of the GeForce 4 ti4200 to come down or you could spend the time saving a bit more as well. Currently they are around $500 I think, from memory.
