Multiple Monitor setup

Hi,

I would like to run up to 3 monitors, although for now 2 would do. (I currently have 1.)

I have an ATI Radeon 3600 Graphics Card, that only has one output on it. I am surprised as it seems almost all cards have at least a DVI and a VGA. However, this just has a DVI and what look likes 2 USB or firewire sockets too. They are both slightly different. I am providing an image as I realise this is not very clear! http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/263/atiradeon3600.jpg/

There is a standard VGA socket on the motherboard, but if I try and use this the pc moans that I should be using the DVI on the graphics card.

Basically I would like to know the cheapest way to add more monitors. Like I say, 1 more would do for now.

Many thanks, James.
