No. Now, if your Xorg is >= 7.4 then you won't get a multi-card system.
Even with an "old pci vga only" card, it will not work.
Randr 1.2 compliant drivers will help when you have a single-card with
multiple outputs (and yes, I know that a bunch of nvidia cards are
working with the open source nouveau driver).
