Default Dual video cards

I have a radeon 9800 agp card and a radeon 9250 pci card. And an SiS mother board. For some reason i can't get the two to work together. In bios it asks me which one i want to have as my primary(agp or pci) but nothing else. I have two monitors and if i plug them both into one card, both monitors work, and if i plug them both into the 2nd card, both monitors still work, but when i plug one monitor in each, only one monitor works. I'm trying to get 3 or maybe even 4 monitors to work.
