I'm using an PCI-E Nvidia 7900GS and am frankly very happy with it. If I were in the market now, I'd probably go with one of the 8 series cards, maybe an 8600GT, etc. Vegas doesn't use much of any of the horsepower these cards provide for gaming so you're probably best off saving a few bucks and going for something in the middle of the road for about $150.

I'm using a Nvidia GeForce 6800GS/XT with dual DVI connections. It's a good middle of the road card for a reasonable price. I haven't had a single problem with the card, while in the past I've had problems with my Matrox dual head cards.

I am using a dual-DVI 6600GT, which is even cheaper than the aforementioned cards. Don't spend more than $100 on the card. With the money you save you can get a colorimeter to calibrate it. Vegas recognizes monitor profiles.

I have an 8600 GT and it runs two dvi great, or one dvi and one HD TV no problem, but I wanted two DVI and an HDTV so went with a second 6200 that runs a second display and use the 8600 to power one DVI and one 42 inch LCD at 1080 but am thinking of getting a HDMI card to run the monitor at 1080P.
