Christ on a crutch this is hard! All I want is a second monitor. I don't care if I have to buy a dual output card, or a secondary card, but I don't want to spend more than 40 bucks and I dont want to take a performance hit over my existing card.
I can't find any cheap PCI (NOT PCI-Express) cards. WTF? I can't find any cheap AGP dual output cards better than my two year old Radeon. WTF?
Anybody else had this problem, finding a reasonably cheap way to add a second monitor to an older system?
