Niall answered this really well. Got a nvidia video card myself dual
DVI with a Samsung 22" as main display and a Sony 32" as secondary
(used only for videos). Works really well, it does 1366x768 (HD ready
resolution), I wouldn't really use it for computer stuff, my aim is
X and the nvidia drivers work flawlessly with it. I do have a bug at
the moment but related to the new card (GTX 280) rather than the multi
screen setup. I have documented my X.org file there :

So in short, works well but as Niall advised, wouldn't use it as a
replacement for a monitor.
