It's one video card - the smolt profile lists it as:
nVidia Corporation NV44 [Quadro NVS 285]

I'm not at work anymore, but according to a quick
google search, that card has a DMS-59 connector.
I have an adapter that breaks that out into two VGA
connections and each monitor is connected to one of
the VGAs.  The video driver looks like nouveau from
the Xorg.0.log.
