No, you only need 1 video card with 2 outputs (either 1 VGA and 1 DVI, or two DVI's).

If you are using Nvidia, nView is the driver application that will allow you to setup the dual monitors. It is usually located in the "desktop management" section of your driver control panel.

I would recommend dual view instead of span.
