Triple Monitor Setup?

I'll list my specs below, but I'm wondering what I should do to set up a triple monitor? I might purchase another graphics card if I have to, but I'd rather not if there is another option. By the way, I want everything to be in 1080p. I know that sounds silly, but I didn't pay good money to have less quality.

ASUS N53SV
Intel Core i7-2630QM
4GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M (1GB)

The monitors/TV screen I'll be hooking it up to:
ASUS VH236H
VIZIO E3D320VX

you have to outputs, one VGA and the other HDMI. 1080p depends on the monitors/tv.

That you can forget. The max it's going to get you is a dual Monitor setup.
As far as purchasing a GPU is concerned, I do think if I can recollect correctly, some company had comeout with an external GPU casing and GPU for laptops a year or 2 ago. But we haven't heard of them being used on laptops and the kind of results that they give.

You could use Matrox stuff

Or

Then you'd need other stuff like

Or then some PCMCIA stuff like this

Needs some looking into .

This seems to be your best option as of now.

I apologize for the long response.

I do have a GPU, according to some other stuff I looked up. It says "Intel(R) HD Graphics Family"???
Can someone also explain to me what the difference is between a graphics card and a GPU?

Thanks. I feel stupid for not googling that. I always Google things, and get mad at people who don't.

its all good :) 

just don't get thrown off if while you are reading on this site how both those phrases "gpu" and "graphics card" are interchangeable when being discussed.
