depends on wether or not you game. also, that is a link to the motherboard, not the computer.
i would suggest either a Geforce 9600gt or a Radeon 4670. make sure it has at least 512MB of memory

I might recommend the new lower power 4770 if your going to try and play some games, but if all you want to do is drive two monitors than really any video card should be fine supposing that is has the right hook-ups (DVI, VGA, S-video etc.)

Well if you have a pentium in there (especially a single core with no hyper threading), then it would be worth it to upgrade to a core 2 duo 6800 or something. As for the video card it just depends if you plan to play games, or are just gonna use it to watch movies and run office apps. If you're not playing games then you may want to look at a Radeon 4550/4350 with a DVI and HDMI output.
