As far as I'm aware, an HDMI splitter will allow the same image to be sent to multiple monitors, not send 3 different images to 3 monitors.

With a laptop, unless it's a gaming machine with 3 outputs already, or an upgradeable GPU board, I don't think you can achieve what you hope. The only other way I know for extra video on a laptop is per USB, and that's not fast enough for gaming, only things like business presentations.
