Considered a couple of PCI Matrox G400/450/550 cards?  They are
available in PCI models, and will do up to 2048x1536 on the primary
display and 1600x1200 on the secondary.  They are generally well supported.

(I have a couple of 16MB versions, actually, which I'm considering
replacing with a G550 with DVI output now that I have a DVI-capable
monitor.  I think mine are both AGP though.)
