Three Monitor Display

So, this is my situation, I have a workstation at my office. I do not "game" or even use intense programs. I am still running Windows XP in fact. I really want a three monitor setup because I have my office camera's on one screen, and work on the other two. So, to do this, what would I need? I am thinking about a Radeon 6670, but here is my question, can I use a DVI Splitter cable like this -- (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812200810) -- to connect two monitors to one DVI port, and then simply connect the third monitor to card? Also, what would be the cheapest, but reliable card which can handle my needs?

  1. DVI splitters like that will send the same image to both screens. I would get a 6670, then you'll never have to worry about three monitors slowing you down, and they're still fairly cheap. Get one like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102988 then use a vga, a DVI, and an HDMI cable. Or an HDMI to DVI cable if your monitor doesn't do HDMI.
  2. You know what I lied. The 6670 won't do eyefinity, you'll have to spend some extra money and step up to the 7750 to do so. It's not to much more, and you'll have a better card.
