Is it possible to connect two monitors on a laptop, one through HDMI and the other through DisplayPort?

For example the Alienware m17x offers 3 connections, HDMI, DisplayPort, and VGA. Is it possible to connect two independent external monitors, one through the DisplayPort and one through the HDMI port?

Simple answer is yes so long as your drivers support it. It would certainly be possible if you were using a usb displayport adapter I'm just not sure whatever chipset your running would support different output to 3 connections (assuming you want to extend your desktop not just have it cloned on multiple screens)
