    1. I would like to know if this Nvidia card will work in the new (2) 2.66GHz Quad Core:

    http://store.apple.com/us/product/MB137Z/A.

    According to Nvidia, this card is for 2nd generation systems.

    2. I do alot of music sequencing, editing photo's and watching DVD's once in awhile. Which video card would be suggested, the Nvidia or ATI Radeon?

    Thanks.

    What's wrong with the stock card for what you do again?

    So buy a Mini DisplayPort-DVI adapter.

    Hopefully it will work. I was reading alot of reviews about these adapters not working well.

    That would be the dual-link one. You don't need it unless your second monitor is 2650x1600.

    Rationality and expecting people to see the obvious is not allowed here, Eidorian. :p

    So yes, you'll be fine.
