Currently I have two 23in monitors setup and was looking to add a 3rd. I was wondering the best way to go about this.

Hardware as follows:
Radeon HD 4870 1GB
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83GHz

running windows 7 x64

Your hd 4870 has only 2 dvi ports, so you will either need to get another hd 4870 and not xfire them so you connect a 3rd monitor, or upgrade your gpu to a 5xxx, 6xxx, or 7xxx series gpu that is eyefinity capable. A third option would be a matrox triplehead2go. But the easiest would be to upgrade your gpu to one of the new 7xxx series. Don't forget to check that your psu has enough power to run the new gpu (it should be alright but best check)

Hope this helps. Good luck.
