You will need a video card that supports multiple monitors or multipe video
cards and multiple LCD monitors.

Are you trying to show the same information on each of the monitors? If so,
buy a video splitter. There are many different models available and support
from 2 to 16 monitors (at least the ones I have found).

If you want different information on different monitors, you will have to
either put in a different video card that supports that feature or a second
video card for the additional monitor/s.

The best question is what video card do you have right now? You need a
video card that has enough video outs for you to connect monitors to.
If you need more than just two or three monitors, you will probably need
to buy a PCI video card to compliment your existing video card. Here is
a list of supported devices for multiple monitors in XP:
