Default Three monitor setup?

Hello Guys,
Iím new to the forum, and was wondering if someone would give me a hand, my current setup is shown below:
CPU: QuadCore Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600, 2400 MHz (9 x 267)

Motherboard:: Asus P5N-D

GPU: nVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT (512 MB)

RAM: 4096 MB (DDR2-800 DDR2 SDRAM - Corsair XMS2 CM2X2048-6400C5 MHz)

Disk Drive: WDC WD50 00AAKS-00A7B SCSI Disk Device (465 GB)

At the moment I have a single monitor: Dell S2409W (24Ē full HD) and was hoping to connect another two VGA dell monitors (Dell IN2010N). I assume I will need to purchase a secondary graphic card, I want the cheapest card possible, has anyone got any recommendations?

Thanks
Dan

was thinking of something like this: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...tid=56&subcat=

That card will work if you don't need those monitors for anything high end. This is assuming your motherboard has 2 PCI-e slots. Just get a DVI to VGA adapter for that DVI port on the graphics card if it doesn't already come with it. I'm running a tri monitor setup. I have an 8800GT running my center 24" LCD, and a 7600GT running my 2 side 19" LCDs.
