The 970 will only support 1 vga monitor with a dvi-I to vga adapter. A splitter will just clone the displays. You would need active digital to analog converters for the other 2. Your best option since you haven't bought the displays is to get monitors with digital inputs.

Since its 2015, the best solution is to not use VGA at all. But I won't question your choice to buy those monitors, but rather, provide a solution to make your system work together.

Yes, you can use VGA adapters, or certain VGA cables to make this setup work.


Adapter Cable


Splitter


Adapter

You can get away with different combinations of these to complete your triple monitor setup.

Just want to also mention, that there are HDMI to VGA adapters, and DP to VGA ones as well. You might want to consider those, since the video card doesn't have 3 DVI ports.


HDMI to VGA cable

I hope you have not yet installed with LG's monitor,you can find 24inchi thin like dell u2414h aka dp 1.2 suppport or eizo FORIS 2434,then change your gpu to gigabyte gtx 970 via 3x DP/Dual-link DVI-I / DVI-D / HDMI.I also plan I was looking for a 120hz 24inchi.aka low MS.
