This looks like xrandr isn't seeing the second card at all. In *theory*,
nouveau should be able to do multicard with these video cards. However,
it's possible that your xorg.conf is making that not work properly.

Can you move your xorg.conf away, restart X, put your Xorg.0.log up
somewhere, and run xrandr --listproviders; once X has started?

In theory, you should also be using KML, which should configure all of
the outputs fairly early in boot as well.
