I am running similar hardware with similar drivers in a dual head
(twinview) setup with no issues as described now or ever in the past.
I use two 1680x1050 displays connected via DVI cables. Package
versions are below but are the standard testing packages. I don't run
KDE, just XMonad and xcompmgr.

$ lspci | grep GeForce

$ pacman -Qi nvidia | grep Version
Version        : 270.30-4

$ pacman -Qi kernel26 | grep Version
