You will need 2 graphics cards as i am not aware of a single card that will output to three monitors. just make sure one of them will output to whatever the tv will accept (component, s-video etc,)

Matrox Parhelia Series can do triple display on one video card. Think its fairly old though but they use 'em in CAD and GIS work that I've seen... but like Jedi said, for gamers might just be better to go with 2 graphics cards (dual PCIe or single PCIe w/ PCI)

Be aware that a lot of video cards struggle with the 1366x768 for your 32" TV.

I would recommend looking on the site www.avsforum.com to find a card that can drive the TV properly and then add a second card to drive the two 22" monitors.
