    What do I need to look for? Will any 512mb DVI card do?

    For a few weeks recently, I ran my Dell 24" lcd on an Intel motherboard with onboard GMA X3000 graphics. And it did just fine. I played some hd clips that I downloaded on it and I couldn't tell the difference from the onboard to my 7900GT card.
    Obviously I wouldn't be able to game with it, but my point is that it doesn't take much of a video card for decent graphics, even on a 24" lcd.

    Any card will work. You don't need a card with any specs other than in your case DVI.

    Hell I've got a GF4 MX440 that would work...it has a DVI port.

    it needs dvi and has to support 1920x1200, other than that, pretty much anything will work.

    Only programs that render objects in 3D need a "good" graphics card. Most all other video still uses the CPU, with the exception of MPEG decoding for playing DVDs.

    all up to you how much you want to spend and how much video power you want. Like they said, anything that can do 1900X1200 is fine.
