make sure you have the right DVI connectors if you buy/already have bought the monitors.

Confirmed that all apple computers work the same with regards to external monitors. MBA, MBP, iMac, Mac Mini... the key is using the right DVI adaptor for your iMac. I have 2008 imac running dual 24" external monitors and it looks great.

Mini DVI (or displayport) to VGA or DVI-I....depending on what your monitors will accept. 42" would imply VGA or HDMI maybe? DVI-I to HDMI adaptors will also work.
Then get a DVI-I to 2xDVI-I splitter.
Finally connect up your two extra monitors to the splitters.
Personally I use Mini-DVI from iMac to VGA, then VGA splitter cable into 2 monitors. This works fine.

Hope this helps
