So basically I could have two cards such as, Nvidia GeForce GT 640 2048MB, connect two monitors to each through the DVI ports and do what I outlined in my OP without any problems?

Yes. But make sure your computer has two X16 length PCIe slots, otherwise you will need to adapt one of the PCIe X16 video cards to a shorter PCIe slot: The PCIe slot adapter cables are cheap, and are probably a better choice than modifying the video card (like I demonstrate on my web site) or the motherboard.
