Need a card just for dual monitoring. It's for work so I need to be able to pick it up local like at frys. Needs 2 DVI connections. Trying to keep it sub $50. But I don't want it to be the cheapest card ever. Anything out there like that? Brand does not matter.

Looking at frys is confusing. I haven't kept up with the latest budget cards. Any help is appreciated.

Edit: PCI Express and cannot use additional power.

If all you're doing is general computing, you can get a Radeon HD 6670 for about $50 on eBay. The next step down would be a HD6570 which should suffice as well. But firstly, what are your monitor resolutions?

1920x1080.

I have to use a company card so it has to be from a retail store.

I was searching other threads and saw AMD 5450 as a suggestion. But I was only seeing vga+dvi. Is there no DVIx2?

Thanks rastaban! Ordered the fanless option. It's for work so no noise will be good.

I use the 6450. It powers even triple monitors, so dual display should be a breeze. Comes with 2 DVI outs and 1x HDMI. Didn't even know they made a 6150!
