Either that, or any nVidia card with dual outputs. You can have it dual-DVI
or DVI+VGA (the DVI port has the VGA signals as well, and the cards come

Not anymore.  And they are the fastest ones you will find. As long as you
don't mind relying on non-free drivers, because if you do, the FireGL *may*
be a much better choice (I don't know if it uses free drivers or not).
