    Yes.  In fact many videos card will come with more than one connector on them so you can attach more than one monitor to a single card and display something different on each monitor.  Often the card will have  more than one type of a video port.  Such as it may have a VGS port, a Displayport and an HDMI port.  You would be able to attach three monitors to such a card and display something different on each.

    If you have slots in our computer for installing more than one graphic card, then you can install more than one and use each with a different monitor displaying something different.  Some computers that have build in graphics card may disable the build in graphic port if a video card is added.  If that happens, you may have to go into BIOS and turn the build on graphic port back on.

    you can, but that  is more power/heat depending on the card.  How about a dual display card?
