Where can I get a dual vga pci video card?

I have an older Dell Dimenson v333c. I currently have an NEC 17 inch lcd monitor hooked up and I want to hook up a second Samsung 15 inch lcd monitor. My computer doesn't seem to have an agp slot so I went looking for a dual vga pci card, but only found single vga + tv output? Is there a pci card that has 2 vga outputs? Also, is there a way I am overlooking to hook up my monitors? Maybe leave mine in the original built in monitor hookup and get a single vga pci card and hook them up to run dual monitors?

Ussually onboard video ussually doent play well with pci cards Sometimes this can work but rarely does

Being as you dont have a great system to start with i would not invest too much into it so i would recomend a moderately priced dual monitor pci card like a ati radeon 7000 or a matrox card like the G400 mms G450 or G550 Nvida also has some ok options

These probably arent the best deals price wise you can find but they are reasonable and you get the idea
