Can all graphic cards support 3 monitors? I plan on getting three 19-20" monitors, but would like to leave the option open for slightly larger monitors (22-24" if they happen to go on sale or I can pick up some cheap ones off craigslist). The monitors will be used for stock trading, which is mostly charting and news data. The programs and platforms used are pretty simplistic, I think it's meant to run on basically any computer the requirements and firms recommendations are pretty low

required to run platform is:
Display Resolution:1024 x 768
HD Free Space: 50MB2
Operating System:Win 2000
Processor: PIII 1Ghz
RAM: 256MB

suggested/recommended
Display Resolution:1024 x 768
HD Free Space: 50MB2
Operating System: XP
Processor: 2 Ghz Intel compatible

So my goal is to run 3 separate monitors-screens, pcpartpicker.com lists interface, chipset,sli/crossfire,video ram, dvi port, fans, but I'm confused on what to be looking for will any of these work (because I think I read that only certain cards can support 3 monitors- I'm unsure how to tell from specifications which can and which cannot) . I've read a few recommendations on models but i'd like to be able to look at a list and specs and pick out which are ok for 3 monitors and which are not, i also plan on putting price drop updates to get the best deal and some of these cards probably...is $99 for a zotec 560 a good deal http://ncix.com/products/?sku=83597&vpn=ZT-50708-10H&ma...
? can a get something for less than $100 that can run 3 monitors?
