The video card you're looking at is WAY old and antiquated.

You can get a decent Radeon 5400 series card which is DirectX 11 capable for around 32-40 British Pounds from Amazon.UK

Do you want duad DVI output and does it matter? Will one VGA and one DVI output be okay?

Thanks for the replies

I have just had a look at my Graphics card in the PCI-E Slot and i have two connectors, I have the VGA pluged in and i aso have a DVI.

If i connect my third monitor to the DVI will i need any software to run that third monitor because i have just tried it and it detects it but i just get a black screen.

P.S. Hook both monitors to the video card.. Even now hook the one montor you have to your current video card. Video card's blow away on-board video. The only current mobo's with decent onboard video are the newer AMD boards that use the newer AM3+ low end cpu's (i/e: Llano,etc. have HD6200 or 6400 gpu's built into the cpu.
