Any video card from 30US$ and upwards will support two output channels (DVI+DVI or DVI+Sub-d).

I would say an actual video card with the dual outputs is the way to go unless you are on a laptop where you don't have the luxury of easily replacing the card.  Make sure that you get a card that can handle your graphic needs.  If you are into graphics, multi-media or gaming  i wouldn't skimp out on the itme that you choose.
