I previously suggested the Matrox M9140 with the matrox proprietary driver
but the current one does not support the Xorg server 1.13 which is the
server for CentOS 6.4.  Until they update the driver package, it can't be
on a CentOS 6.4 system.

In the next few weeks I'm going to test some other graphic cards that have
monitor connections on one card:
  ATI FirePro 2460 Multiview
  NVidia Quadro NVS 420
  NVidia Quadro NVS 510
I hope that they will work with the open source driver (radeon or nouveau).
