3 Monitors on same PC

Hello everybody

I would like to purchase the following video card:
Gainward nVidia GeForce GTX550Ti, 1024MB, GDDR5, 192bit, HDMI, PCI-E

On the PC with this video card, I would like to connect 3 of the following monitors:
Monitor LED Samsung 21.5", Wide, Full HD, S22A300N

The result would be 3 screens connected to the same PC, however, with the following capabilities:

1. Different image (different desktop) on each of them
2. Ability to simply move the input (mouse and keyboard) between each of the 3 screens naturally as if it was just 1 screen

Question(s):

1. Do I need some special hardware such as a monitor hub or some special connectors or adaptors in order to achieve this ? If yes, what are my hardware options and requirements having in mind this video card and these monitors

2. Do I need some special software to achieve the targeted functionality ? If yes, what is suggested ? (thinking about NVIEW Desktop Management Software from nVidia)

Looking forward to your reply.

Thank you!
