Default PCI + onboard video = 3 monitors... possible?

I have an Acer Aspire AM1640-U1401A, using an NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS to run dual monitors.

I took it apart to add another video card to run 4 monitors, but there is no more video card slots! So... I still want at least one more monitor, is it possible to use my PCI card and my onboard video to make my third monitor work?

( I'm looking for more screen space, not gaming.)

Yha, you should be able to.
What mobo/gpu is it?

Basically, if you can get both gpus recognized by the system, you the just extend the desktop like you did on the duals.
