Which ASUS graphics card do you have? It would help us look up the details if we knew the model number so we can look up a picture of the card to see what connectors and adaptors you might need. Most Radeon HD 7970's can run three monitors easily.

As said, you'll probably have to run your game windowed or alt tab out anyways to use skype or surf as usually when a game like a FPS has focus, the focus will only stay in the "window" of the game in a multi-monitor setup to make sure your mouse doesn't go out of the play field.

Shouldn't be an issue just don't setup eyefinity, games will play on your "main" display and you can have whatever you want on the other 2.
