If you take the video cards out of crossfire you can use the 2nd card, otherwise it is a just a slave with dummy ports. Now with AMD GPUs other then dual link dvi, if you got the ports you can use em for eyefinity. There are low end card specifically built with 5 or 6 display ports for a workstation setup.
Side note, if your not gaming then the 6670's are fine... but 2 6670s in crossfire with any modern game are going to choke something awful. There is just not enough ram, or umph to drive 3 or 4 monitors. I had to dump 2 6870s in crossfire because they were not enough for triple monitor.
