You're going to need a new video card that has two outputs for monitors. The new video cards all have them now. They're pretty standard these days. It's just a matter of how much you're willing to spend on a nice video card that produces great looking graphics.

Your welcome. Just make sure your motherboard has that PCI-e x16 slot. I'm sure most new motherboards do. I don't see the logic of new boards with AGP support. Gone with the wind.

Depending on the graphis work / gaming you do and your budget, a 7600GT is a good mid range card.

If you wish to spend more I can point you at better cards.
