Default Dual-head OpenBSD workstation?

Time to replace a bunch of ageing crap hardware with something a little more up-to-date. I'm planning on building an AMD64 machine from which I'll be running OpenBSD (probably -CURRENT). I already have an OpenBSD/amd64 machine as a server, which has been very reliable. This new machine will be my replacement home workstation, but I want to use two Dell 2408WFP 24" TFTs with it as I always have lots of stuff open (research, watching DVDs/AVIs, mail client, etc). So, question is:

Does anyone have any recommendations for supported (and decent performance) graphics cards I can put in my new system which will support the dual monitors? (or am I better off buying two graphics cards and configuring xenocara appropriately)
