Post Multiple Monitors?

OK, I have an nVidea GeForce FX 5900 XT, and it has three outputs, vga, dvi, and s-vidio, How many screens can I have coming off this card? and How do I go about setting up these screens?

Default Re: Multiple Monitors?

How do I find out what the "Screen" numbers for the ports are? do I just guess?
I know that VGA is "Screen 0"
