    Dual DVI is always possible in X.
    I dunno about the high resolution though as there are issues with 
particular video cards in X and Windows drivers 'cheating sometimes' by 
looking at the monitor's VSync and HSync values (Intel's onboard video 
with Dell Optiplex 260's/270's has a bug with improperly adjusting the 
resolution of the screen for instance).
    Any ATI/nVidia (preferrably nVidia as have better hardware support 
in Unix and in general) cards you get though should work perfectly, and 
I know that some of the nVidia Quadro cards support dual DVI out displays.
