My System Specs

Default 21:9 Monitors

I'm thinking of getting a LG 29EA73 29IN Ultrawide for myself as a bit of a B-Day present, and I have a few questions.

1. Is this just a gimmick thing and would I be better off just getting a regular 16:10 or 16:9 monitor?
2. I would plan on using this with one or both of my current monitors, these are both older models that only have VGA and DVI inputs. Can I continue to run these 2 monitors from DVI from a 650Ti and run the 21:9 from HDMI or DP on the same card, or would I need a second video output, either the IGP, or adding a second card like a 5850? nVidia says the 650Ti supports 4 monitors, but there's usually something they don't tell you.
All's well that's Haswell
