How do I set up 2 monitors + 1 TV on my computer?

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:

  1. The video card has one HDMI plug, that is ideal for the TV and two dvi plugs for the monitors. What's the problem?
  2. 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.

    Thanks!

    The problem like I said is I have very little knowledge about this stuff, which is why I'm here asking for help :)
  4. 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".
