Anyone got three monitors working?

Howdy All -
I have Gigabyte EP43-UD3L motherboard with a single PCI Express 2.0 x16
slot. It currently has a decent NVidia card - a GeForce 7300 GT. I've
got two monitors attached, one via the VGA port and one via the digital
video port. It works well, I get accelerated X and wobbly windows and
all that silliness. Guilty pleasure: I like eye candy.
I'd *really* love to do triple head - the monitor in front of me for my
main work, and the two side screens for supporting stuff.
I am wondering, since my motherboard has a four PCI Express x1 ports and
I see PCI Express x1 video cards for decent prices, if I can either
replace my single card with two identical two-port X1 cards, or just add
a single X1 video card to what I already have and get triple head.
Has anyone done this?
