Default 2 Video Cards with 3 Monitors

I have 2 monitors now and I want to add another one. I have a GTX 260 video card, but I only have one PCI Express slot so I need a PCI video card. I had an older PCI 5200 Geforce card but that doesn't work....just crashes my system with incompatible drivers. What PCI video card will work in my system?


Edit: I just checked Nvidia drivers and it seems like the 8 series cards use the same driver as my GTX 260....so would one of the 8400 pci cards work?

Antec 300, Q6600 @ stock, 8gb Mushkin Redline pc8500, 300gb Velociraptor, 2 x 250gb seagate hd, Visiontek 4870, Asus P5Q-Pro, Samsung Tru-Direct DVD Burner, Dell 24" monitor, G15 Keyboard, Razer Lachesis Mouse, Razer Barracuda AC-1 Sound Card and HP-1 headphones, logitech crappy 2.1 speakers, Corsair 620 watt modular P/S, Zalman CNPS9500,
