Please recommend a: Dual PCI 2.0 or PCI-E Dual Video

My system is Win 7 64 bit, Emachines ET 1831
I would like to have 2 monitors running through my PCI 2.0 or PCI express slots.
I have tried just adding a video card, but can't get it to work along with the onboard video.

I searched Newegg and cannot find anything that is Win 7 compatible, PCI 2.0, and supports 2 monitors.

thanks in advance.

newer cards have 2x DVI ports, so you'll have no problem disabling the onboard GFX & running both screens on the 1 PCIE card..

what card did you try..??

are you asking for a card recommendation, or just clarification as to what is needed for 2 screens..??

yes i'm actually looking for a recommendation for a card. a good card under $100? Don't need to play games, just want to use it for work, not super graphics.

I'll reccomend this cause i like Nvidia and it should be able to be used with your power supply Newegg.com - ZOTAC ZT-20404-20L GeForce GT 240 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards Then everyone else can do the ATI thing. Best of luck. Fabe
