Default Video Card for Double-Monitors

I have a Sony Desktop (PCV-RS 430G) with an ATI Radeon 9200 (128MB) video-card. I want to replace the video-card to be able to have a double-monitor arrangement. Not used for gaming; hence high-speed is not a requirement (looking for cheap). Will also be buying two new LCD monitors;
Recommendations???;
Thanks;
Tony

If you wanted to go a little cheaper on the video card, u should just get a 5500 and one vga-to-dvi adapter, like the ones below. And you shouldnt really notice quality loss... u can get a second opinion if you want to.

And all the bad reviewers on the adapter bought it to convert a dvi to a vga. which it does not do. it converts a vga to a dvi. But if i were you i'd shop around a bit more.


And the reason the vid card is cheaper is because its not meant for gaming. I used to own one with dual screens. it worked great.
