Your current card already supports two monitors, so any PCI video card should do for the third monitor. You can even get a PCI card that supports 2 monitors if in the off chance you decide to get a fourth monitor.

As for if its better to get a Maxtor, Nvidia, or ATI card you'll find that getting the same brand of card may be as problematic as usign another brand so I can't help you there in regards to driver installation and/or conflicts.

There are DVI to VGA connectors available to connect an Analog monitor to that DVI conenction that you have on your monitor, unless you plan on using a digital monitor in which case all you need to do in plug it in.

Im running 2 VGA monitors already, the graphics card came with an adapter. When I put in a second PCI card it wont override the current AGP card? Something like this would work, right? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814129046. Any gaming stuff will be done on a monitor going through the card I already have. The only thing I would do on a third monitor is maybe photoshop and flash. Will that card do? And is there any cheaper card that will work with just a VGA? A VGA is really all I need

Thanks,
