If you look at the video card you can see if you have multiple ports , you would need to see what ports you have . Do you have a DVI and a HDMI or do you have a VGA and DVI , if you have two ports and the two monitors have those ports then you can connect. Depending on the model of video card will determine what you can do with connecting two monitors. Your computer has been discontinued by HP so that means it's on the older side and you may need a video card upgrade for this to work. So if you can you need to post the brand and model of your video card.

The card has only a DVI and HDMI output so I know I need a new card. my problem is the PSU is only 250 and all the cards I've seen require at least 300. I'm just wondering if a 250 card with with two outputs is available.

The problem is that with a 250w psu you'll only get a card that works with a 250w psu and that's what you have.
I still need to know what you have for a video card.
You may need to upgrade the psu.

Also I don't need a card for gaming. I just need one to connect two monitors

If you have a card with a DVI and HDMI then why can't you use it ? It would connect two monitors if one had a DVI and the other had a HDMI port.

The card is a Radeon HD 6450. My monitors are both VGA.

This link is a graphics chart that lists the video cards in order of top quality to the lowest and it's for each brand Nvidia and AMD/Radeon.
So you do have some ptions and it's going to depend on what you want to spend.
You can upgrade the video card and it may mean an upgrade of the psu as well.
Since your not gaming with the card I do think you can use the card that you have and all you need are a couple of adaptors.

You take a vga cable from your monitor and connect it to this adaptor that is pluged into the video card.

Then you take this HDMI to DVI cable and attasch a DVI to vga adaptor and you can connect the second monitor to the HDMI port.

It's kind of convoluted but it gets you to a connection from the card you have to the monitors. It's just a suggestion and you can decide what you want to do.
