I have been reading many ppl opinions on single vs duel Graphics cards. My system is about a year and a half old, Dell dimention 3100. I have upgraded to 2gb ram and untill recently when i changed servers on WoW the factory modle with more ram was sufficient. Playing primarily on a PVP relm has higher lag issues ect and i wanted to run at full graphix so im in the mood to drop some cash on a video card.

Dell Dimention DV051
Intel Pentium 4 3.06GHz
1.99GBRAM
Win XP
Current Graphics via onboard intel Chipset

Was wondering if one card of a specific variety was good enough or if it was more effective to go with two cards. Im currently studying to become a doctor and want a card with tv output for study/presentation purposes. Screen too Screen is also a personal requirement. Currently i have a 500 ish price allowence however i dont want to greatly surpass my current computer with and overpowered set of cards. If you have the time to respond your imput would be appreaciated.

If i havent left enough info for you to make a suggestion please inform me of what you would like to know.

Thanx for everyones help

from what I see on this page, you can't really upgrade the video, there's no pci-e 16 slot

your onboard is as good as any old style pci card

You would be better off to sell that one and buy a computer that could be upgraded, your power supply is only 230 watts

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
