Three monitors on one computer?

I currently have an Intel BoxDZ68DB Motherboard:

which features 1 display port, 1 hdmi port, and 1 dvi port

I also have Diamond Radeon HD 7770 graphics card:

which features 2 mini display ports, 1 hdmi port, and 1 dvi port.

I'm currently running 2 monitors (each 1920x1200) each connected to a dvi port-1 on motherboard, other on graphics card.

I would like to add another 1920x1200 monitor using the hdmi port on the graphics card and was wondering if this was possible.

If that is possible, would it also be possible to connect a television to the hdmi port on the motherboard? I would like to be able to have all four being used at once (although the television won't always be used); however, I would settle for being able to shut off the display from one of the monitors when using the television, but would like to not have to change the connectors on the computer every time I want to display something on the television.

I'm wondering what else I would need to purchase to get this all to work. I read an article that said using display port was required if you use 3 or more monitors, but that was from 2 years ago, and I'm hoping things may have changed.

I was also curious whether I would see any noticeable difference in displays based on whether the display is connected to the motherboard or the graphics card, or whether everything just sort of "combines".

I also have a ATI Radeon 4850 HD that I could install if it helps the situation. (it has 2 dvi ports)

The display port is required only if you're using 3 or more monitors from the graphics card alone. However, it should be possible to achieve what you want. It will work.
