Curious about adding a 3rd display

This would be for my CAD workstation.
Right now I have an ATI FireGL V3600 card with dual digital outputs, and I'm running a pair of Viewsonic 22" widescreens.
I had a wild idea to switch to a larger central display and put a smaller display on each side since we have some older 19" non-widescreen displays laying around. The added display would not need any special graphics acceleration capabilities.

My mobo is a Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R. It has a single PCIEX16 slot, and some 3 each PCIEX1 and PCI slots. Would I get a standard PCI card to run a third monitor? If you have dual video cards what is required to extend the desktop across 3 screens? Would both cards need to be ATI?
