You would have to get a pci graphics card, not pci-express, not AGP. Something like this:

Newegg.com - EVGA 256-P1-N399-LX GeForce 6200 256MB 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

It'll support 2 monitors, but don't expect much more out of it. It'll play old and low end games, and some RTS games, but that's about it. But if all you want is the dual monitor functionality, this will work fine for you.
