Yes you will have to get a cable (like the one you picked out) to split the connections

Or you could get a PCI graphics card and plug your monitor into that.

Disadvantages might be performance decrease with visual displays, but if you are just using the monitors for web surfing and the like then you won't notice any difference.

Not sure about your setup options. Someone else might be able to help you with that, but I assume that you would be able to have 3 separate screens
