I want to use 3 monitors, one on built-in Intel iGPU card and 2 on PCI-E Nvidia card on desktop. Is this setup possible?

Searching gives Bumblebee for Optimus technology on notebooks, I tried and it gives only one Intel card working.

Using Nvidia driver gives Nvidia card working for X desktop and Intel card working for TTY's. Also there is wrong resolution on Nvidia monitors.

Using free driver that comes with Ubuntu gives 3 monitors working but display quality is poor, mouse cursor is flashing.

nouveau is not in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

lspci -k | grep -E "VGA|Display"
00:02.0 Display controller: Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200 v3/4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 06)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GT218 [GeForce 8400 GS Rev. 3] (rev a2)

Switching primary display in BIOS toggles cards, both do not work in any case.

    Bumblee Bee project could not handle integrated Intel and seperated Nvidia graphic card thing on that day. I think this is a so far away thing to solve. – akikara Jan 26 '15 at 12:52
