adding dual monitors to an extreme graphics PC


H

I'm looking to set up dial monitors for a home business Dell PC that
only has the Intel Extreme integrated graphics (No AGP slot at all). I
know I need to buy a PCI card to do this, but I have a couple of
questions:

1. Can I buy a single headed PCI card and hook one monitor to it and
the other to the integrated graphics card? Or should I get a
dual-headed PCI card and just use that to power both monitors and turn
off the integrated graphics? This PC is not used to play games so 3D
performance is not an issue, it's just for office, web browsing and 2D
graphics like Photoshop and Pagemaker.

2. Do all video cards with one DVI and one VGA output support dual
monitors? I was looking at this one but it doesn't say.

Thanks for any help anyone can offer.
