If it has two ports on the back of the card, then, Yes, it can.

I don't have the article in front of me, but Computer Shopper or PC World ran it. It was all about running dual monitors. You can search their sites and find it, though.

Windows natively supports dual monitors. All you really need are dual outputs. It can be set up in Windows.
