Default Video card for duel monitors

Hi all,
I am looking to hook up my two monitors for duel performace. What kind of video card do you suggest I buy for two video outputs if my deficit budget is $50.00 USD?

We need a leeeeetle bit more info to give you a solid answer. What slot do you have for the card (PCI, AGP, PCI-E)? What kind of outputs do you need (2 x DVI, 2 x VGA, 1 x DVI + 1 x VGA)?

Hi! Thought i'd take a look for you and found this Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100292L Radeon HD 5450 (Cedar) 1GB 64-bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Low Profile Ready Video Card
I was about to buy this before i decided to spend a little more money on the GPU .
It has VGA, DVI and HDMI ports, and has ATI Eyefinity Technology therefore supporting up to 3 displays. Ideal for what you want to do and for a reasonable price, if not a tad above you budget

any video card that has 2 ouputs. Look at an ATI card.
