I have a Alien Aurora with Duel Video Cards: ATI Radeon HD 5670, and I want to hook up both my hd monitor and hd tv to it. How do I hook them up using an HDMI cable for both of them. Right now I am having to use a VGA cable to my HD monitor and HDMI to the TV all on one card. Can't figure out how to make it work any other way. Please advise me on what to do.

You can get HDMI splitters, though I'd argue it'd possibly degrade the quality of the signal which therefore defeats the whole point of HDMI but there you go.

Depending on the board, they should already be working together.
In theory you can have as many graphics cards in a machine as you want.
