You COULD do it, but there is no point. You could really only run one at a time anyway.

How else would you use 2 monitors at the same time, I'm running 2 cards right now.

Yes you can run two at a time the best advice i can give you is to run two different types of video cards though so you don't get drivers mixed up or you can get a NvIdia card the will support two monitors
