    I have a 1.6 G5, with 1.25 Gb ram
    and the stock video card that comes with it

    currently i run one 21" dell trinitron crt on it.
    works pretty good. i run it at 1600x1200 @ 90hz

    i want to get a second 21" monitor and also run it at 1600x1200 @ 90hz

    can the video card support two monitors at 1600x1200 @ 90hz?
    (i also have to get an adapter for the adc to vga)

    Get a Dr. Bott ADC to VGA adapter for the second screen. I use it to on my dual 1.8 with an Ati 9600. Works like a charm! My 9600 can go to 2x @ 1600x1200 @ 90hz. I would say the 5200 stock graphics card can do the same.
