I want the ability to run a triple-head setup if I so wish.

Does it take just 3 ports in any card? If that is not it than how can I tell?

My IDEAL setup is the following:
Center = 24" Widescreen HDTV plugged in with HDMI for audio/video
Sides = 19" 4:3 Monitors, DVI or VGA is fine
This is because I already have the 2x19's and the 24" Wide is the nearest in height so the setup looks right. The total difference comes out to about 3/8".

So what video hardware do I need to make this happen? I am looking to spend hopefully under 150 on the card, and I would like 1GB or more of Video RAM. Current hardware is in the signature.
