Graphics card with dual monitor support for CentOS 5.7

Postby bobheath » 2012/01/16 18:20:47

Can anyone recommend a graphics card that has support for dual monitors on CentOS 5.7? It would be nice if I could find a hardware vendor that is glad to support CentOS 5.7, instead of running away from support like Nvidia apparently does. :-?

You won't find much better supported graphics cards on Linux than nvidia ones. ATI also provide proprietary drivers but IME they are not of such good quality so if they provide better support then it's because you need it!

Welcome to the CentOS fora. Please see the recommended reading for new users linked in my signature.

My vote goes to Nvidia with ELRepo kmod-nvidia page drivers; however, ATI with ELRepo kmod-fglrx may also work for you if you are an AMD fan. I don't have specific hardware recommendations, as mine are always hand-me-downs from my teenager's gaming systems, and thus not current. Have not had a real problem with video drivers for Nvidia for some years now. Can't say the same for ATI, but they have improved greatly in recent times.
