Card that can support 3 monitors?

With my current build, I've been trying to make it work with three monitors but my Graphics card doesn't support it. Could you guys give me some names of some good videocards that can support 3 monitors? They can be any output, i can just get converters. Preferably some newer ones please.

Just about any newer AMD or Nvidia card will support triple monitors. The trick is getting a card with plenty of RAM on it. If you are gaming at high resolution, you need 3+ GB of RAM so you don't run out as it is drawing frames across the screens. What kind of monitors do you have and what is your budget for a video card?

Any of the new Nvidia 700 series cards would do just fine. The 760's that AddRAM just linked to are really great value cards.....AND there are 760's with 4GB of RAM, which you need for HD triple monitor setups.

I'm low on money, so maybe like a card under 250$.

This is the exact card i own, what is the performance difference between the two?
Amazon.com: EVGA GeForce GTX 570 1280 MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 2DVI-I/Mini-HDMI SLI Ready Limited Lifetime Warranty Graphics Card, 012-P3-1570-AR: Electronics

And would any gtx 660 be able to support 3 monitors or is it just that specific card?

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.
