What cheapo PCI VGA cards work two-headed?

I am trying to get fedora to work two headed. My computer is a very old funky system with pci slots, my monitors are an eMachines eView 1712 and a Samsung SyncMaster 710v LCD flatpanel.

I have been having some trouble getting my s3 virge card working with the samsung and yadda yadda.

Basically, I want to know what cheap new PCI video cards to pop for to get this working.

Most people seem to use older AMD PCI cards. They have excellent support in linux and often do dual head on the one card. Also, non DirectX10 cards are about to get very cheap.

You may be able to dual with the onboard and any one pci card.

But the best approach is to go see what cheap cards are available, then look up two or three you like.
