Default Does the GTX680 support 4 monitors?

I have a GTX680 with 3 monitors, connected through 2 DVI ports and a DisplayPort. I have an open HDMI port - can I simply connect this to a 4th monitor?

Wait.. it does?! Do you have to buy a special card? Because I wasn't able to hook up my four to it
EDIT: what I mean is.. I thought the HDMI and DisplayPort were shared?
EDIT 2: Nope. sweet. I guess I'm thinking about my old HD 7950.

The 600 series is where Nvidia started supporting more than 2 at a time and bumped that up to 4.
