Default 3 or more monitor setup?

Hi everyone,

I just ordered the parts for a new PC and Im thinking a 3 or 4 monitor setup would be sweet. I currently have a 4870 on order so I can get 2 monitors with that. I guess I have 3 questions for you experts :)

1. Can I install a cheap Crossfire 2400 or 2600 for the sole purpose of adding 2 more monitors?

2. Can I connect the 4870 and 2400/2600 in Crossfire for an added boost?

3. Im getting a P45 motherboard that goes 16X with one card but 8X in Crossfire. Will having the lower power card actually decrease the performance of my single card setup with 4870 at 16X?
