I know this hardware has been problematic for some users, but some of the issues reported may well have been fixed with later kernel releases, so upgrading the kernel may be one option for you to consider.
Does the following execute without error? It may yield more info about the CRTC(s). Assuming it works, post the info here. Someone may be able to advise further.

Are you trying to connect 2 external displays concurrently, as well as the laptop (LVDS1) display? I don’t think that’s possible. Your xrandr output shows that the laptop display (LVDS1) is using CRTC 1 and the DVI-connected monitor is using CRTC 0.
do you mean that you achieved the same results as prior, or that you couldn’t get graphical mode to work … (the later would beg the question of whether you could get to console and if dmesg provided any clues as to what the issue was)
you may also consider just giving up on the gma500 driver and utilise fbdev (just add nomodeset to your kernel boot line in grub and the gma500 driver will be prevented from loading at boot)

Instead of --right-of you could use --above or --below to avoid
exceeding the max allowed size, though it may not be what you want.
Other than that you can set a higher virtual desktop size in xorg.conf.d
but from what I understand that will disable 3d and xv acceleration for
