At 89.99 after rebate, you can't go wrong with the GeForce 7600GT. It is a FANTASTIC video card, not next generation or anything, but it gets the job done well for most people's use.

If I read that spec sheet right you have a video card the computer shipped with, correct? That would be why It says (0). You already have a card in that AGP slot.

the card lookin4help suggested is PCI-e which will not work with the AGP slot you have in your computer. There are a few very expensive AGP cards with dual DVI but all cards in your price range will have 1 DVI and 1 D-sub port. The same 7600GT for AGP is $170+ so here's a ~$110 AGP card.

Its got 512MB memory and is only $85 after rebate.

Does 512 mb memory gave much of a difference than the 256 mb memory? But wow thats still a great deal though.

How come the card seems very cheap with all that specs? Any reasoning on what makes the card highly-priced?

Here ya go. Dual DVI, AGP and cheap. This is the lowest priced card that newegg sells for that criteria. Enjoy.
