Triple monitors on Dell Vostro 430

Last Modified: 2013-11-08
Hi, I currently have the Dell Vostro 430 with an ATI 4350 card in it.

I run two montors on my Vosto 430 (one DVI: 1920x1200, other VGA: 1600x1200)

What I'd like to do is:
Add a third monitor of identical spec to the 1600x1200 I have.

1 The specs of the Vostro are here:
2 It's an i7 machine with 4GB RAM, Win7 64
3 All monitors have DVI and VGA connections. The more I can run on DVI the better, obviously.
4 This PC is used for office tasks only - though I tend to have a lot running and a lot open. Specifically, it is not used for a) games b) serious video editing or anything like that.
5 I'm in the UK.

My question:
What are my options in terms of hardware to get three monitors up and running? I don't mind whether it will require more than 1 card but obviously want to do it as economically as possible.

I realise there are lots of posts on triple monitors but lots of info is out of date/very old. Plus I'd like specific help with this machine.

Many thanks.
