Use one of these. There's not much else to explain. You just plug everything in and enable the monitors.

The GTS450 and GTX560 are a pretty good deal, imo.

Can't i just use the onboard DVI's and HDMI Or do i have to use the onboard display port?

If so, because my 6870 has Mini display ports, i need a Minidisplay port to VGA (Or can i buy the DVI Version and use a DVI to VGA Converter, so if i decide to upgrade monitors, i can?)

One monitor has to be displayport. The card should come with a mini DP-DP adapter, so just plug the adapter into that. The DP-DVI adapter will only give you a digital signal, so you'll have to find a DP-VGA if you want analog. I highly recommend you use digital though, because you will get pretty severe color shifting with most analog adapters out there,

Sniper, are you having any issues with the size difference with the monitors? Once this summer comes around I will be going EF. I plan on using 30 inch IPS panels, though. Getting them from India so I pay practically nothing.

well im not OCD like foothead, so i find no issues.

and i dont mine having a big main monitor as that's kinda of what you look at mostly, and the side ones are just peripheral vision so it doesn't seem to make as big of a difference as one would think. I sort of think of them as "mirrors" to see around corners in Shooters.
