Default Video Card for Triple Monitor

I'm about to buy a Dell XPS 420 and will be hooking up 3 monitors. I was told I should use the Matrox TripleHead to do this. Does anyone else recommend the Matrox and if not what would be a better route to hook up my monitors?

Thanks

i would go with 2 gpus one that is really powerful so if you play games and stuff the other one can be cheaper just to use it for general stuff. also dont buy that dell, just build one for cheaper

Thanks for the quick reply. I actually already have a computer for general use and a laptop, but I need this new one for my job. I daytrade stocks online and am in dire need of more screens and more power. I really do wish I could build a computer of my own, but I wouldn't even know where to begin. I'm familiar with the basic components that make up a computer, but I wouldn't know which brand would be best or anything like that. Perhaps, someone would like to give a newb some general guidance on going about building a computer?
