You might have to check the specs for supported resolutions very closely. I've seen some video cards where the maximum usable resolution shrinks the more monitors you use. It may be that your three monitors combined exceed the maximum resolution that card supports. If that is true you will have to lower the screen resolution on your first two monitors and then see if you can add the third.
