Asus CM5570, 3 Monitors? HELP!

Hello,
I currently have 2 monitors set up with my Asus CM5570 Computer. I would like to set up a third. I have tried to do this:
First Monitor: HDMI
Second Monitor: DVI
Third Monitor: VGA
That did not work. Either why I did it, the 3rd monitor did not show up.
How would I go about putting 3 monitors on my computer?

Thank you.

I believe that your video card can only output to 2 monitors even though you do have 3 ports.
You would need a second video card to run a 3rd monitor.

The onboard video will not work if you have a graphics card. You need 2 separate graphics cards.

I thought I already tried that. So if I have a PCI card that has 2 VGA outputs, and a PCI card that has 1 VGA output. You are telling me that if I connected those it would display on all of them?

I believe so, though you might need to tweak some settings in the BIOS and setup SLI or CrossFire.
