Default Mobo graphics for 2nd display on NV SLI box?

I have a spare 15" LCD monitor lying around and I'm wondering if I can hook it up to the cheesy graphics adapter on my motherboard to act as a second display where I can control media apps, net surf, etc. while gaming on my main display. I'm running Vista 64 with a pair of SLI'd 8800GTS cards hooked up to the main monitor. Is this possible?

Heh, good point. I'm so used to ignoring the MB graphics that I din't realize they were gone

I had to buy a 8400gs but it only cost me like 30 bucks.
