Might be possible if you run a second card just for the touch screen.

Newegg.com - ASUS Rampage III Formula LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

The board supports 3 PCI-E x16 ports. A little overkill and it's pricey but if you want to support 4 monitors it can definatly handle it.
