I have that card and I'm sure that it does support two monitors.
The outlets would be:
1-flat panel
But you can get an adapter so you can run 2 crt's if that's what you have. Don't forget your pushing the card by splitting it's power between two monitors, you may see a decrease in FPS.

I do have ATI 9600xt card which is a little lower than the 9800
I am using daily multiple monitor. There is not significant frame drop . If you have made up your mind using multiple monitor I can give you some tips from my experience . After all I am playing around with that matter for more than a year. You may see some posts under my name here in the forum.

That's good news - RadarMan - can you tell me.... Is that 2 types of output types on the back of the graphics card, that you're referring to ?

(I'm 300 miles away from my PC, in London for a week, so can't check my own Video Card out !)....

I'm not intending to go for the "3D" approach with multi-monitors, I just want my main screen for the 2D panel / Virtual Cockpit views, + GPS and Radio......and I want the second monitor to keep a permanent "Spot View" of the plane, along with, the Throttle Quadrant open at the bottom.

There are two places to plug in your monitors. Your using one now. They both look very different.
One is for a CRT and the other is for a flat-panel (LCD). You can buy an adapter for either so that you can use two crt's or two lcd's or just leave it as is and use one of each.
I think there're called "CRT" and "DVI".
There's probably a TV outlet also but that's another story.
One of these days (don't hold your breath 🙄 ) I'll use one for the aircraft and the other for the GPS.
