Sblackman69, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Any recommendation is dependent on two things, how much you're looking to spend and what power supply (make and model) you have.

windows 7 Professional 64 Bit

FWIW I have a radeon 2600 XT and I am upgrading to a 5770 Juniper. It can be had for around 100 on the egg. As I recall back in the day the 2600 was like 200+ .
It would allow you to run 3 monitors. 450 watt PSU required for single card.
