Dual display video card

I seek a video card with some combination of the following specs: dual dvi output; different resolutions and/or different orientations (i.e portrait and landscape) simultaneously on the two monitors; at least minimal Linux support; PCI-Express; inexpensive.

I'm building a new system to replace my old desktop rig that had a Matrox card with dual 19" CRTs. I'm switching to LCDs and would like to do the following: have one nice 19" LCD in landscape orientation as the main display and one not-quite-so-nice 15-17" LCD in portrait orientation as a satellite display for programming text, photoshop palettes, and the like. I don't play computer games so 3d/acceleration/high fps are completely unnecessary. I'm getting a headache trying to decipher the descriptions of the hundreds of cards on the market with names like "UltraMegaRST5509XQZ Predator Plus! Xtreme!" and hope someone here knows of a card that meets my requirements (or knows that such a card categorically doesn't exist).
