It really depends on your motherboard and the PCI slot type.
If it is PCI-e, and your motherboard is compatible with nVidia's SLI
graphics, you should be able to install a second nVidia GeForce 8800GT
(dual head). This would DOUBLE your graphics speed.
It would enable you to use up to 4 monitors (the max for Windows,
In any case, adding a second nVidia GeForce 8800GT will allow you to
use up to four monitors.
MAKE SURE your PowerSupply is a MINIMUM of 650 Watts. Or you simply
won't have the power to run 3 or 4 displays.
You will probably have to add additional power to your cards, also.
Read the manual.
