If you're going to do one landscape and one portrait monitor, you might 
need at least 1gb video ram depending on the size of the monitors.  This 
is especially true if you want good detail on the portrait screen.  My 
landscape monitor is 21", 1920x1080.  My portrait monitor is 24", 

Video cards are really cheap.  You could probably get at nvidia 
compatible card with at least 1gb for $30 USD, if that.  I'm using a 
cheap chipset (nvidia geforce 210), and it does the job well.
