Graphics cards

I'm on the point of buying a new desktop. Mainly used for work (lots of office and explorer windows open at the same time). I'm looking for a card that will allow me to have two TFT screens on at the same time with different windows in each. I'm probably going to be buying a machine with an nvidia Geforce board so what one do I need if I'm going to be able to do this?

Are there any cheaper models that have Twinview, that you know of?

For consultik's needs, a 7800 would be total overkill and very costly.

I have had a quick look on my usual first stop (Dabs) but didn't find any references to Twinview in relation to specific models.

Thanks guys

ade.h's first link describes exactly what functionality i'm looking for, but I'm still unsure if this is now common functionality on the nvidia cards or something restricted to a very few cards. I'll go and check a few sites and see if i can find reference to twinview on the desktop specs.
I assume on the 7800 link that the key references were the dual dvi support and n-view? Is this what i should be looking for?
