Just about any nVidia card (with their proprietary drivers) that meets
your basic requirements (dual DVI output) should suffice, especially
if you're not after super 3D performance (although you'll likey get
that too).

You can probably get xinerama working with the open source nv driver,
but I've never tried.  I have a Shuttle MN31N motherboard which has
dual VGA outputs and it works beautifuly with FC4.
