View Full Version : any ati's that do these features?
looking for an ati that could be either dual monitors or dual tv and monitor at the same time and still be kick @ss to play games with... do they make one in the 9000 series?

my 9700 can have 2 monitors and a TV
your biggest bottleneck for playing games fast is that cpu and ram

yeah, that cpu is going to bottleneck anything faster than a radeon 9100. If you aren't looking to upgrade the rest of your system i woudn't drop anymore cash than that for a card. don't make the mistake of getting a 9000/9200 the 9100 is a much better card. You will find that even with that card your cpu is going to be a bottleneck, but you should be fine in most games and the 9100 also has dual monitor support, (tv out).

The 9100 is only marginaly faster than the ti500. Not worth an upgrade. And your cpu is too slow to take advantage of anything above that. It looks about time to build a whole new computer.

I would have to agree, just remember to Fold with the old rig!!!

As said before, any ATI with VGA/DVI outputs can do dual monitors. You can also use the TV and a monitor if you want. Now for games, I guesss it depends on how much you want to play and what you are willing to spend. Look at the 9500/9600s
Or if you are looking budget, you should be able to find an 8500 for less than $100.
oh i was jujst wondering for my next upgrade.. it will most likely be a new system all together, reason before was i had a gforce2 mx400 that could do it, but gave that to my sister for her comp and got my ti500, the mx400 had nview from nvidia that allowed dual view while the ti500 didnt, only 1 at a time...most likely get an ati if they did.... price is only an issue on the top of the line models

I would say get a 9800pro for about $200 or a 9600pro/xt for under $150.
