Need recommendation for video card, Optiplex 380

Hi all,

I need help figuring out which video card I need to enable use of two monitors on an Optiplex 380.

I know this has been addressed on the forum before, but the video card that was recommended in that forum appears to be outdated and discontinued.

Can anyone help me?

I'm trying to expand my desktop, rather than have the same image show up on both monitors.

Any help much appreciated. Thanks

I spoke with a Tech at VisionTek about the Radeon cards and they stated that nothing below the 5000 series will work with Windows 10.  Do you have another recommendation for the same question that will work with Windows 10?  I have purchased nVidia GeForce 1GB VGA/DVI/HDMI PCI-Express x16 Video graphics Card+Low profile, but i'm still not sure about how the required Power Supply minimum plays into the card you select.

Please help!
