Windows Vista, Aero, and three monitors (triple head)

I am in the process of picking out parts for my new system.  I would like to have three monitors and aero working.....

I currently have an ATI X1900GT video (dual video output).  I need one more video output/video card.  I know I need to get the same manufacturer so that they both use the same drivers, but I am not sure which video cards will work.  Ideally I would like my second video card to be a PCI (not pci-e) to save money on both the card and the motherbaord (I have picked out a motherboard with only 1 pci-e x16 slot).

Can anybody suggest a PCI video card that I could use that will allow Aero to work with my three monitors and my X1900GT video card?
