Is it possible to run dual monitors on a SLI enabled system? I've read that you loose this ability with SLI enabled - is it true? If so, are there any articles that discuss this topic?

I think for 3D mode, it is limited to one monitor for the time being.

I was hoping that the SLI setting would only impact applications that use this feature. However, this does not appear to be the case. I've set up my SLI system with two BFG 6800GT's. I initially attached both of my monitors and set the system to Dual View. Everything ran great - I could have excel on one screen while running Turbo Tax on the other. However, when I enable SLI and reboot I loose the second screen entirely. The only way to get them both back is to disable SLI and reboot. I sure hope there's something I'm doing wrong here because I really like running both monitors, and I don't want to have to disable SLI and reboot to get them back.
