Thoughts on *PCI* Dual-DVI?

Anyone have any advice for me on a good PCI Dual-DVI card? Matrox's
web site lists some (MMS series), but I am concerned about only having
32 meg on the card total..

What I have now are 3 19" Viewsonic Flat Panels.. I want to add 2 more
(programming workstation.. trust me, I really do use them) of the
these monitors (VX900) for 5 total.. Rather than have to have 1 AGP
and 4 PCI video cards (ugh), I was thinking about doing the left and
right pairs each with a dual DVI card and then a single DVI card for
the center ..

What do you all think? Any recommendations?

16MB per monitor is more than enough for 21" monitors. My G450 with 16MB would
do too.

No discernable lag issues or anything when running at 1280x1024x32bpp
you don't think?

I am running a pair of 21" IIyama at 1280x1024x32bpp on a G400 AGP with
16MB Ram no problems at all. Speeds is great and identical in real terms to
another system using a G400MAX with 32MB RAM.

16mb a monitor is plenty for non games machines.

Hope this helps

Andy
