A craphics card (or two graphics cards) and OS that supports two monitors.

yes you should be cool.
If you nead to you can get a DVI to VGA adapter, but it should work fine. Once you try it you will never go back!

here's what you want
1) 2 monitors
2) and and adapter that supports two monitors or get another PCI card

if one of your monitors is DVI,, (since you seem to have a card that supports it)... you can go ahead and use dual monitors,
if you have 2 lcd's then you need to get a DVI to VGA adaptor.
or if both your monitors are normal VGA.. then you need to get a VGA to DVI adaptor... you dont need to be einstein to figure that out..

hope it helps ..
