Best Possible solution?
What is the best possible solution for a three monitor non-gaming person? The card should be under #100, prefferably the lowest price without losing quality. The highest graphical performance needed is watching Youtube videos. What would be the best card for this, and how would I set it up (what adapters would I need)?

what type of video input do the monitors support?
could you be more specific on how you want the monitors to function, 3 monitors acting as one or three independent displays...
PSU is 450w, Monitors support VGA and DVI ( they are all the same monitors).
Also, the monitors is just as an extended desktop, not duplicates. So, I can drag my mouse from one screen to another. This is what I would like to happen.

So, I have three of these monitors, with VGA and DVI inputs, (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236115)... So, if I were to get this card, (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125403) what extras would I need, and how would I set it up?

So how would I configure this, if all three of my monitors have VGA and DVI? what adapters would I need, and how would I connect everything?

You need a displayport for it, this card has a display port : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161403
There's some 6670 with dp, but in newegg, i couldn't find it.
You need a displayport to dvi and a hdmi to dvi too.
