I have an XPS 15 9570 with the i7-8750H, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050Ti and 1080p screen.
I'm interested in creating a setup where I can use two external monitors along with the laptop screen, in extended mode. I want this for productivity reasons, so I can have three different applications open on each screen.
I want to be able to use two Dell P2418D monitors (see link below) as the external displays, running each external display at 1440p at 60Hz.
Since the external monitor i'm interested in has a display port (version 1.2), I want to make use of the USB-C (Thunderbolt 3) port on the laptop. So basically a docking station with two display port outputs (each of which supports the 1440p at 60Hz), and some other useful ports like USB type A, type C etc. I don't necessarily need to charge the laptop through the USB-C port; I can use my regular charger for that.

My questions are as follows:
  1. Is it possible for my laptop to run this setup?
  2. If yes, what docking stations do you recommend?
  3. Is there any other advice?

PS: I'm new to using dual external displays in tandem with a laptop's display. However, I understand the basics of external display systems.
