"Support for PCI Express x16 graphics cards up to 150 watts and with up to 512MB graphics memory including:
NVIDIA Quadro® FX 4500; NVIDI, Quadro FX 3500; NVIDIA Quadro FX 3450; ATI™ IreGL™ 7200; NVIDIA Quadro FX550; ATI FireGL V3400; NVIDIA Quadro NVS 285. All graphics cards support dual monitor configurations"

So i guess it just depends on how much money your willing to spend on a workstation graphics card.
i think the FX550 is prob. the best. But I don't know that much about Quadro

Why would he need a work station card? Any card can handle 2 monitors. If there's no gaming involved just get something cheap and low power like and HD4350 or g210.

thats what DELLs support website said.
Now, a GeForce card can prob. work just as fine. But god only knows what they do to their hardware to make things work or not.

I doubt even Dell could mess up a system that bad. But a good question would be what he plans on using those two monitors to accomplish.

Hey hskkcr,

An ATI Radeon HD 4350 for about $30 would be an ideal card for a multiple monitor configuration. (assuming you are not a gamer)

It's more power than you need for multi-monitor, and still has low enough power usage not to strain any normal system.

A GeForce 210 would also be a decent buy assuming your not gaming.
