First off ;
GeForce® GTX660 1.5GB graphics or AMD Radeon™ HD 8670 2GB graphics.

Looking at Lenovo's website, according to what the deskop looks like, I'd say you would need ;
1x VGA Cable
2x DVI Cables

Depending on what GPU/Video Card the computer comes with. From what I can see online, he GTX 660 has 2x DVI ports while the Radeon HD 8670 only has a single DVI port.

The best idea right now would be to get the 660, and get 1x VGA and 2x DVI cables. Don't forget to make sure your monitors will support DVI!

You should be able to attach 2x DVI monitors into the GTX Card itself, and have 1x VGA monitor off of the tower itself. Making, three monitors.

Will having 2 on the GTX card and 1 off the tower work?  I tried this once using : 1 DVI , 1 VGA , and 1 HDMI off 1 video card but PC would only recognize 2 monitors at a time (either DVI + VGA or VGA + HDMI)

Thanks
