Can a Nvidia card output two different colour modes to two monitors at once?

Topic.

I currently have a monitor hooked up to my GTX 460 via HDMI, and I'm using the YCbCr444 colour mode through it.

I have a second monitor I can hook up to my GPU via VGA (through a VGA > DVI converter on my GPU), however VGA doesn't support YCbCr444, so I'm wondering if I can get one monitor to use RGB, while my primary monitor remains on YCbCr444, is this possible? Or can a single GPU only output one single colour mode?

Yes, each monitor has different settings.

I had no idea what that setting was for. But it does seem to look a little better than RGB so far.

YCbCr is for TV sets. It's not superior to RGB, it just uses a different set of base colours. In fact, since most LCDs are RGB at a pixel level, RGB would be more accurate.

There is a very noticeable difference in black levels between the two
