the 430 has only 1 x DVI and 1 x Mini HDMI,

i see a big displayed colours difference between the two ports, the DVI colours are more vibrant, the HDMI colours are more matted, using the same brand of cables too.

i never realized buying a graphics card would be so difficult. LOL

any of the newer firepro or quadro workstation cards will work fine all you need is adapters to go from display port to dvi/hdmi and the most reasonable firepro i can think of is the v4900

NVS420, ready to rock with quad DVI for 460 bucks

hi Rommell
thank for all your help,
i took all the advise and decided to get a more powerful card.
went for the ATI FirePro V7900 with 4 display ports
i think it will give me enough room for expansion for the future.
am waiting for it to arrive. thanks for your help.

you need a high end case? or just a well ventilated one? or just a big one? Cosmos II is a 350$ case and while it can accomodate XL ATX mobos it stops there. Your mobo is a regular ATX format but I would go for the HAF 932 and save you some $$. Not to mention HAF 932 is really big and has space for up to and including E-ATX mobos (12"x13"). I have seen it in action in 3.0charlie's garage and I was impressed. The money difference could land you a SSD!
