Hello all, my knowledge about this stuff isn't great at all. But I will be building my first computer very soon and I want to have a 2 monitor + 1 TV set up. But I am unsure about how to go about it. Maybe you guys can help me out!

I currently have a Samsung LN32B460 32" TV and an Asus VH232H 23" monitor.

I am planning on purchasing one more monitor (would also take suggestions as to what monitor I should get to compliment this set up...looking for another 23"!)

This is also my current parts list for my computer build:

The video card has one HDMI plug, that is ideal for the TV and two dvi plugs for the monitors. What's the problem?

Simply plug in the monitors/tv and they will all run, assuming all drivers are installed. You can configure the location in nvidia control panel or through windows screen resolution options.

As far as monitors go if you like the Asus you already have I would just pick another one up for a matching set.

That was the plan but it seems to have been disconttinued or something so its either out of stock or way expensive now. So I shall move on to finding a different one

Take care, it's the same size (23"), resolution (1920X1080) and panel technology (TN) to get the same "feeling".
