You need two VSIMMs (and the small daughter card with a 13W3 monitor
connector) to use both heads. Two VSIMMs and one head is a waste of
a good slot and VSIMM :)

An 8M VSIMM would give you 24-bit colour at resolutions above 1152x900.
A 4M VSIMM would give you 24-bit colour up to 1152x900, 8-bit colour
above that.
