Nvidia added a particularly useful feature to their Release 180 driver, SLI Multi-Monitor Support.

support, giving you the ability to use two monitors with your GeForceÂ® graphics cards in SLI mode. Now you can easily switch between multi-monitor desktop mode and full screen 3D gaming mode without any additional system settings. Multi-monitor aware games â€“ such as World in Conflict, Supreme Commander Forged Alliance, and Flight Simulator X â€“ surround you with amazing graphics to immerse you in the game. In addition, you can enjoy the flexibility of having 2, 4, or even up to 6 displays based on your GPU and motherboard configurations.
In a nutshell this driver update enables the remaining display connector on the primary card running SLI.Â It also allows you to add other Non-SLI Nvidia cards (counting the on board mGPU if you got it) to run displays without using the old method of disabling and re-enabling cards to get it going.
Thanks to Dragon for the tip!
