Dual Monitors on M52?

Hi everyone,
 
I have an IBM M52 8215-d1g, that according to the internal riser has a PCIe 1x addr2-r slot. According to the documentation on the website it is a Small Form Factor (2x3).
 
I have some questions:-
 
I want to run a second monitor off my machine, what cards/ type of cards are recommended for my desktop box?
Should I be looking for a dual head card, or would the system be able to utilize the internal card at the same time?
 
I would preferably be looking for at least a 256Mb card minimum, would also be looking at mebbe HD support for future ref, but not essential, as the TV has a VGA in that I use.
 
Thanks so much.. if there's anything I have missed, ask away.

Thanks AndyP.. Have updated my location.
 
Can anyone help me?  Or is there a direct mail address to lenovo / IBM where I may get support? I am finding that because my machine is out of warranty, I'm the I.T. equivalent of the boy at your school who smelt of cabbage and sour milk.
Highlighted

The following graphics card should do the trick, it was an approved option for the M52 MT 8215. (at the time)
 
 
I believe the following card could also be used;
