Default What video card would work?

I'm thinking about picking up another SAMSUNG 225BW Black 22" 5 ms (GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor. The video card I have now only has one output. What video card should I get if I don't play any games at all?

Any video card will do, if you don't play games at all.
