Default Geforce 8500GT PCI - good idea?

I am planning on getting the Zotac 8500GT PCI to allow me to run dual monitors on my PC without disabling SLI - would the card be good enough on the PCI interface, or would it be bottlenecked and not be worth it? i dont have a 3rd PCI-e X16 slot, thus i cant buy a different card, and i considered the 8500 because of purevideo so that it would have the least impact on my CPU in terms of overheads - would it be a good idea getting this to put in my spare PCI slot or should i just get a 6200 PCI for about 14 less?
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 @ 3.4GHz
