Some graphics cards have an SVHS out, while others (like mine the nVidia Quadro FX 1700)have a breakout box that feeds an NTSC signal; component, composite and SVHS.
My understanding with my card is that you can not drive dual computer monitors and the breakout box NTSC monitor. So, one computer monitor and the NTSC monitor or just two computer monitors.
Another solution is to purchase a card from BlackMagicDesign or AJA to drive the NTSC monitor and some also offer more I/O options. It really depends on needs (connect to analog deck like Beta SP or SDI, HDMI, etc) and $$ available.
Good luck with it!
Or, you could use a Firewire setup - run a DV signal via Firewire through your camcorder to an NTSC display (or through a device like the Canopus ADVC-300).
CS4 does allow you to use your second computer monitor for full screen playback. The downside to this is that you lose screen real estate but it is an easy way to deal with previewing HD material. If your using DV material Scott's method is the best.
