What DVI card drives an Apple 30" Cinema display under Vista?

Looking for a graphics card for my 64-bit Vista Ultimate machine that will support as much of the resolution of an Apple 30" Cinema display as possible, and will ideally drive 2 of these monitors.

This is for heavy writing/coding. I like lots of windows open. I won't be playing games or doing anything graphics intensive. I just want to get as much out of the Cinema's high resolution as I can.

I am looking for people who actually run 64-bit Vista with 30" Apple Cinema displays. Right now Windows sees it as a generic PnP display with no more than 1280x800 resolution, and I can't even get Aero to work. Nor can I find any drivers that support the Intel G35 spec, hence my interest in a real graphics card.

Windows Vista Ultimate
Intel Core 2 E8400, 3Ghz
8 GB Ram
Intel G35 Express chipset
30" Apple Cinema display (plus another one when I get the right video card)

Currently evaluating:
Radeon 3650

Any graphics card with a pair of dual link DVI connections should run it.
