Multi monitor

Hi

My configuration is Asus P8Z77-V LX MOBO, Ati CrossfireX support, Intel Core i5-3450 (HD 2500), W7Pro

http://ark.intel.com/products/65511/Intel-Core-i5-3450-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_50-GHz

Now I use it with two monitors in extended mode

1. LG Flatron IPS234, HDMI/DVI/D-SUB (http://www.lg.com/uk/monitors/lg-IPS234V-led-monitor)

2. LG L1718S, D-SUB (very old) (http://www.lg.com/ca_en/monitors/lg-L1718S-lcd-monitor)

I'd like to enlarge this configuration to support 4 monitors. I only use it for work, heavy multitasking, no eyefinity or game support needed.

The additional monitors might have

3. 22"-24" with DVB-C, HDMI/DVI/D-SUB

4. some older 17"-19", D-SUB

One of the 22"-24" could be in portrait mode.

My questions are

1. Can I use the onboard Intel HD2500 together with an external card to support 4 monitor environment? If yes, what cheap card do you recommend?

2. If not, can I use two video cards to support 4 monitor environment? If yes, what cheap card do you recommend?

3. Where can I find documentation about setting up a non-gaming multi-monitor environment?

Thank you in advance.
