Multiple monitors

I need to work on graphic apps like CorelDraw and CAD apps like AutoCad, sometimes at the same time. I currently use my tablet PC with another monitor as extended desktop. I want to put together a desktop machine, preferably with an AMD 64 CPU. Which Graphics card will serve my purpose best? Gaming performance is not an issue. (The ATI Radeon Xpress 200 chipset supports 2 monitors, but the only motherboard I could find based on it - MSI 480M2-IL has only a VGA out - weird)

Windows supports up to nine monitors

Chipset support is only of interest if you want the chipset to provide the video. There are a number of video cards that have two analog ports on the back.

Not available here

The ATI FireGL workstation video cards are not available here in India. The NVidia Quadro cards are, but the prices are atrocious (equivalent of $900 or thereabouts). Will the GeForce V 9400 do the trick?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
