Looking for a cheap videocard for use with two 22" monitors.

Looking for recommendations for a basic videocard that can be used with two 22" displays.

At the moment I'm using an old ATI X300 videocard with a single 22" display with a resolution of 1680x1050. I've ordered a second equivalent monitor but need a videocard with another output, but I'm not sure what to get.

I don't need a high-end card or anything as I don't play computer games. If you know of a good deal on a specific model that would be welcome too.

The computer's graphics slot is PCI-E.

This is $40 and supports dual-DVI output: DIAMOND Radeon 2400 Pro

That card supports dual link DVI ... ie.. for large ass monitors like Dell/Apple 30". You want a dual DVI card like this SAPPHIRE 1034 Radeon HD 2400PRO 256MB 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready Video Card - OEM ($41.98)

Good call, I missed that. Thanks for correcting me!

If the monitors have VGA input instead of DVI, you're going to need a couple of adaptors as well.

I ended up getting the card that sirstan recommended. Works fine.
