I run a dual monitor setup on a HP Pavilion desktop computer. It came with a 15" Samsung LCD screen but that is a bit small for my old eyes so I bought a 19" BenQ. I tried to sell the small one but after a week and no sale I decided to keep it.
As my computer had onboard video I just got an el cheapo secondhand S3 Trio (ancient) video card from my local techie. Popped it in the PCI slot, got the correct drivers from the net and adjust the settings in "display" to stretch the desktop and away we go. I use the big monitor for working and on the small one I have my email, music player, and an assortment of widgets like calender, weather, and net monitor.
I don't know how I ever managed with just one monitor, let alone a small one.
