Okay, I have 2 monitors (kinda), a main 17" 1280 x 1024 monitor and my projector which is somewhere around 800 x 640 (I know its an odd resolution).
I need 2 VGA outputs, as both monitors are VGA. I understand many video cards now come with 2 DVI and 2 DVI to VGA convertors, and I guess that would be fine.

, Would that do what I wanted? I don't do any gaming really at all that requires a video card. I play assaultcube occasionally, but that game maxes out on my intel graphics.
From what I've heard Nvidia is much, much easier to work with for linux, so I'll probably be buying an Nvidia card. I basically just want a dual monitor setup and currently only have one video out. Mostly my second output will be running VLC media player most of the time or a browser with a video stream.
