I have an old desktop that I still use and do not want to replace avoiding the cost but mostly repacing all cables, software etc and since in is humming along quite well I will revitalize it with an SSD and give it another year or two.
But I want to upgrade the display since the 19 inch that came with the computer is not working well with the software Sony Vegas 11.0 and especially W7 which I use.
I actually plan to buy two displays – one for project window and one for preview – to be able to work efficiently.
I do have some questions where I need your advice – if not specific but as a direction.
My budget is not a limitation but I hate to spend money on things that I do not need or use so I have no intention to spend any euro that I do not need to spend.
First – Which display size and resolution should I look for in order not to over nor underspecify?
Second – What kind of graphics card do I need without overspend on graphics capability ?
Third – Do I need two graphics cards for two displays if card slots is a limitation ?
Forth – Is it actually wise to spend money and more important perhaps – desktop space – on two displays or should I go for just one and save footprint on my desk?
