Radeon HD 4350
Picked it up off a friend for 20 when my nvidia burnt out. 
Im wanting dual monitors badly... Reading some places that this is indeed able to have dual monitors..

So what all would I need for it?

a lot depends probably on the specific card, thats just a chipset many manufacturers do make it. Though, the vast majority of 4350s can indeed run dual monitors-as long as your not expecting to much. If your just wanting two monitors for web browsing, or watching a movie on one while surfing on another that card will be great. If your wanting it for any kind of high performance stuff like gaming, you might want to invest in something with a good deal more horespower, that card is very much on the low end of the performance spectruum.

If it's got two or more outputs then yes it will support dual monitors.  They generally do have at least two outputs with variable configurations. Possible variants include:

 

2 x DVI, 1 x S-video

1 x DVI, 1 x VGA, 1 x S-video

1 x DVI, 1 x VGA, 1 x HDMI

 

You might need adaptors depending on what outputs are on your card and what connectors are available on your monitors.

Mine has the normal port that my main monitor is plugged into.. Then it has a blue port right next to it. Assuming that its a DVI? 

So what would I need in order to make this work? Or maybe its a VGA.... Not sure :/

DVI is typically white, and longer, with several holes on one side and on the other a single line with 4 dots. VGA is typically blue, smaller then DVI and has 3 rows of holes. Also, DVI holes are typically actually squares-while VGA are circular.
