Video card compatibility for dual monitor?

Specs: Windows XP
If a video card (9800gt) has dual dvi ports for output but it lists the max resolution as 2560 x 1600, is that the max resolution for one monitor or 2? My main question is will this video card be able to support 2 20" monitors running at resolution 1600x1200 on each one?

Yes, the monitors are independent of each other. You should be fine.

yes your good to go. That being said your graphics power is being split between 2 displays. Depending on applications, you may have lagging. At work we do a lot of video editing, Even though a single card supports 2 monitors, it renders twice as fast with a separate card for each monitor.
