I use an X1300Pro for my second video card, anything cheap is best.

EVGA 128-P1-N309-LX GeForce FX 5200 128MB

You can try that. Its ATI but its the card my friend used to dual monitor with SLI, and it worked.

Or go for this if you want to stick with nVidia

if you are gonna run 2 cards, just make sure they use the same driver. will save you a lot of hassle.

since you are running an 8800gt, just pick a cheap nvidia pci card. just needs to be able to push 2d.
