Video Card Recommendations?

I have a Gateway that's a few years old, bought it in 2009 for a good price.
Gateway DX-4200-09
http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/gateway-dx4200-09/4507-3118_7-33513602.html

I want to boost the graphics and have a two-monitor setup.
One monitor is VGA and one is DVI (but I guess converters aren't a big deal).

Any suggestions under $75? I'm not buying a new PC, just a graphics card. I'm not really a gamer, but I do video editing, etc.

    Well your buddget makes it difficult, I would suggest an AMD card since they can support a two monitor setup preferably one with lots of ram, but again the budget limits your options.

    I haven't read any reviews on that but maybe you could check around. Sorry if I can't help much I'm not entirely sure on how demanding video editing is on a GPU, but from what I recall the rule of thumb is if you're working on more than one monitor then the RAM of your GPU would ideally be 2gb.
