Default Sli Dual Monitors

I am running two 8800 GT in SLI. What ATI pci graphics card do I need to run second mon? Is anyone doing this currently and if so what ati card did you use and how smooth was getting everything all working?


I am looking at this one because it is cheap I have to do a little more looking and see if it has a 64 driver....


Newegg.com - HIS Hightech H700H64-1TOPN Radeon 7000 64MB 64-bit DDR PCI Video Card - Retail



Oh also just using second card for web browsing, email and basic stuff so cheap is the way to go might go around 50.....

Just so you know, this only works in XP not vista. I use a 1650pro.
