    Hey guys, I want to replace two Samsung monitors with two 24" LED Cinema Display. Right now I can't get both so I'm thinking about getting one first with an ATI Radeon HD 4870. Then later get the second 24 LED with the Atlona DP200 DVI to Mini DisplayPort Converter.

    What I want to know is how good is the Atlona DP200 Converter is? Anyone here using that combination Radeon HD 4870 with Atlona DP200 and two 24"?

    Another option is to get two GeForce GT 120. It is going to be cheaper this way.

    2nd.

    Geforce 120 is a cheaper option if you can spare the PCIe port, and then you don't have to split the VRAM

    Didn't think about getting a 4870 and a GT 120.

    Those two different cards work in Windows 7 too? Most of the time I use Mac OS X but I use Windows 7 with Boot Camp too.

    They should work under Windows 7 just fine.

    I have a GeForce 8800 and a GeForce 120 and they work just fine in Windows 7. Vista had a problem where ATI and NVidia cards would conflict, but I think that is fixed in 7.

    Yeah I read about ATI and Nvidia cards having problems when both are installed but don't remember if it was for Vista or 7. I hope it is fixed in 7. Thanks.
