I am curious as to the maximum amount of dual monitors that a ubuntu installation can handle?

It depends on how powerfull your graphics card is. Because Ubuntu Unity creates virtual desktops per monitor and in the end you could have so many that it would crash the PC. Anyways Ubuntu Unity wasn't meant for Dual Monitors, but it allows you to do it anyways.

This is now older.

12 monitors Natty Warhal
This is a success story for installing 3 ATI Firepro 2260's and 1 Radeon HD 5870 in the same computer.
