Default Need some advice regarding a new graphics card


I'm quite new here so excuse me... :-)

Ok, I am building a new PC, and as I make websites for a living, it's much easier for me to work with 3 monitors so I can see different windows on different screens. So obviously, I'll need either three graphics cards or one which supports three outputs.

The monitor which i'm going to buy 3 of:

The Graphics card I'm thinking of getting:

The monitor has 1xDVI-D, 1xVGA and 1xHDMI ports.
The graphics card takes 1xHDMI and 2xDVI-I.

Now my question is,

1) Is it possible to connect a DVI-D to DVI-I?
2) If I connect 2 Monitors to the graphics card via DVI and 1 monitor via HDMI, does that graphics card support hosting 3 monitors? Will I need extra software, and will it 100% work?

Thank You,
