The NVIDIA driver supports a maximum of two simultaneous display devices per GPU.

I hope that it is not the "start two X servers and switch with Ctrl-Alt-Fx" trick, because it was recently claimed by NVIDIA that this is unsupported, should not work, and if it works it can stop working at any time...
