NVIDIA 2D Surround with 3+2 Monitor Setup

I already have a pretty nice 2D Surround system. I'd like to add two 19 inch monitors as accessory displays tied to a separate NVIDIA card. One would be for Internet, and the other would be for tracking system stats. Will this work? It sounds like it, but I'm not encountering anyone that said it works for sure...

Anyone have any suggestions for a single slot dual DVI NVIDIA card to pull this off with?

  1. Decided to add the sparkle GTS 450 single slot card. Fine for driving accessory displays and can be used under other circumstances as a dedicated physx. physx ain't a big thing though... Gonna test to see if it ads any value though. Still needed a card though, so I figured what the hell.
