comment Need a PCIe desktop graphics card for dual-monitor
Yes, I'm not happy with NVidia's Linux drivers. But I would like hear from someone who has a particular AMD/ATI PCIe card that works brilliantly for desktop dual-monitor display on 64-bit Ubuntu 12.04

The issue here is specifically around which card has the best driver support for Linux. I'm sure AMD Eyefinity and Matrox dual-monitor support works brilliantly on Windows, but I want to know that I'm not going to get buggy or slow behaviour under Ubuntu 12.04.

comment Graphics card recommendation for dual-HD output?
Only thing is, I need to find someone who has actually tried the Nvidia GTS 450 in a desktop dual-monitor configuration under Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit... else I can't be sure it will work.

Not keen on using extlinux, or modifying the image prior to boot. The cloud image comes compressed in qcow2 format, which you can't mount directly.
