Hi, I'm currently shopping around for a new laptop and was wondering what graphics card would be sufficient to suppport running compiz-fusion over a multiple monitor setup? At work we use laptops with intel GMA 50s and when hooked up to an external monitor we can't run compiz.

Any suggestions for the minimum needed? I'm not looking for a top end machine, just one with enough power for HD video, desktop effects, etc.

Thanks!

my brother had nividia 6-series card that worked well with compiz. But dual monitors... no idea.

I think my laptop might be able to but it currently doesn't have Ubuntu installed so I can't see if it can right now.
