[mythtv-users] NVidia 5200 independent output capability?

I'm preparing to build my first MythTV box, which will be used 
primarily for HD programs. I'm looking to purchase an NVidia 5200 
based video output card such as the Gigabyte GV-N52128DS (due to the 
B/W OSD issue with xvmc - only 4000 and 5000 series NVidia cards 
support the workaround).

I would like to connect the DVI output to my HDTV, and the D-sub 
output to a computer monitor. The specifications of this card do not 
clearly indicate if the two outputs are independent. If I use 
Mythbuntu, will I be able to have separate, independent video outputs 
for the desktop and the TV playback?  I am concerned that the video 
outputs provide a single signal in two formats (VGA and DVI).
