no you cannot run 3 monitors off of your gt555m....the only nvidia cards that can do three displays off of one card are the 680 and 670. no matter what type of adapters you use you cannot hook up 3 displays and have them all function at once...you can only do 2

yes but those are extremely pricey and are a pain in the butt to get working right....at that point you might as well get a new laptop...if you are really determined to waste time and money on it here is a link

like I said they cost alot for just the components to get to work and on top of that you still gotta purchase the gpu
