    I'm getting a GTX 670 soon and since I have a few spare vga monitors lying around. I'd figure I'd run these monitors in 3 way while I save up for a 24" LED monitor. Yes I know VGA is inferior, however since I already have these, I might as well use them for their intended purposes. Any clue on how to run this set-up.

    What makes you think that?, VGA is perfectly fine - but do you have three VGA outputs on your video card?.

    What is a GTX670? It is a video board.
    The data said; "VGA" You will have to get a cable. Or a adapter. Check on the price first.

    From this picture it looks like one of the ports can drive a VGA monitor. (not two, not three)
    I would use 1 or 2 HDMI TV for a monitor.
