Sapphire HD 7850 OC Edition 2GB Dual DVI HDMI DisplayPort PCI-E Graphics Card
I marked performance lower ONLY because it isnt the most powerful card, but for the price you will pretty much not find anything better. I can run most of my games full 1080p, maxed out everything, whilst running HDMI to my 52 inch and can play movies etc at the same time. BF3, Guild wars 2, you name it, the card can handle it.
Nothing really. As long as the rest of your system is up to spec (personally I have an OCd i7, 12gb ddr3, but I use it for work mainly, gaming is second place, so you dont need that much to max out most games) this card will be fine for a single display game or duel screening. If you wanted more than 2 screens then you would need another card of course, and once you go past 1920x1080 you may have to tune the AA back a little to keep the FPS stable. But the card is pretty much perfect.
