Firstly, welcome to HWC. Stick around.
Quite a few (if not all) GF4Ti's have dual DVI/VGA output. Depends what your price range is really. I too use Cubase and a few 3D modelling programs; the dual-monitor setup in a real help. Actually was just running Reason (dunno whether you've heard of that) in two montors, with one set up to show "above" the other one. Pretty good for what is supposed to be a rack-emulation system! I'm gonna recommend the 8500 even though you said it wasn't an option. What are the specs of your system? I have a mate with a G450 that games quite a bit and finds performance quite acceptable in Quake3@1280x1024x32, and usually runs 1024x768x32 in Wolfenstein with almost everything maxed. Gets about 40fps.
Shouldn't be a problem for most of the dual-ouput solutions available today. If you can get a DVI flatscreen then even better.
plus I need to be able to work @ 1600*1200 on main monitor and at least 1280*1024 on the 2cnd preferably the 2cnd monitor will be a flat panel,
but I would like to have the possibility of either flat panels or crt on both outputs so my choices of monitors are increased ( the matrox does this)
