Upgrading ATI Radeon HD4200 (Integrated) and multiple displays

Hi, I'm seeking assistance in upgrading my current set-up:

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H
Graphics: (Integrated) ATI Radeon HD4200
CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 240 Regor 2.8 GHz
Power Supply: 500W
RAM: 6 GB
OS: Windows 7 64-bit

I understand that the motherboard has CrossfireX Support, which I believe means that I can install another graphics card to complement the integrated graphics card. Currently, I have three display ports in the back of the box: DVI, HDMI, and VGA. My goal is to have a three monitor set-up without spending a lot of money (budget:$50-150). Do I just upgrade the graphics card to do this? Can I do this already?

    you would want a CPU upgrade as well I would think

    here is a decent CPU but you would be better off doing an entirely new build if you want more CPU power

    also for GPU I suggest a 260X which is about $85 right now

    for a triple monitor gaming set up, you'll need to spend a lot lot more
    for a simple 3 display (game on one only), the 260X will do fine
