You would need to have 2 graphics cards from nVidia to do this. You would also limited to the 1440 x 900 resolution on the 1920 x 1080 if memory serves correctly. What are your system specs?

It will not work properly as you need three monitors of the same native resolution.

I can tell you the Galaxy MDT cards can do it, but your max resolution will indeed be 1440x900 on all three displays (4320x900 total).
