Also would the 760 or the 660ti be able to handle 3 monitors?

What resolution are your monitors?

I'm currently not at home, but I'm 90% sure I have two 1280/1024. Then I'm planning to get a nice hd widescreen monitor for the middle.

I'd say get a card with 3-4GB of GDDR5 RAM if you are using multiple monitors. Other than that, just about any 600-700 series Nvidia card will work fine.

I If you are running several high res monitors more ram will be needed. I run on high res and a 17 inch on the side with my 660. I think it would handle 3 monitors well, but having 3-4 gb of vram would be the better bet.

But there are different models of the same videocard, so some would be better than others. The best model of the 660 might be better than the worst model of the 570, and vice versa.
Some also overclock better.

I would EVGA personally and yes they'll both "do the job". Video says pure digital only on one DVI and digital /analog DVI on the other then display port and HDMI. I think you should allow for some adapters to power up three DVI monitors and then research the digital only DVI port. Maybe some else can comment on the DVI-D vs the DVI-I outputs and what that could mean with you intended monitors.

My Radeon 7870 had twin DVI out's single and a dual link output.

2m DisplayPort™ 1.1 Male to DVI-D™ Male Cable (6.5ft) - C2G
Sorry, i don't really understand what you are saying. Im not that smart with stuff like this. On the Evga card, i see one DVI-D port, one DVI-I port , one hdmi, and one display port.

The two monitors i have right now are both VGA, i have a VGA-DVI adapter's for both of them, and both of them are eventually hooked up to the DVI-I on my current card.

With the new card, i was planning to hook those two monitors to the 2 DVI-I/DVI-D ports, and use an old VGA/DVI-D monitor with THIS cable to hook it up to the HDMI port.

Why would i need the display port to DVI-D cable?

Should work as you plan. If you run into an issue the the DVI-D then you'll have to adapt the Displayport output and that's why I posted that option.
