You can also use SLI enabled motherboards with dual Nvidia cards to get 
more than two monitors hooked up.  the driver will allow certain 
combinations of dual monitor single desktop or multi-monitor multi-desktop.

A big plus with the nvidia setup is that different monitors are handled 
very well.  You can have a 12" old CRT with limited vertical Hz refresh 
rate next to a 20" LCD from Dell at 60Hz and the driver will accelerate 
and join into a seamless desktop both monitors.  Nvidia had that for 
Linux before they had it for Windows!
