I would like to know if the nvidia GT 520 can support 3 distinct monitors at the sametime. It has 3 video outputs, 1xDVI, 1xVGA and 1xDisplay Port but I'm unable to confirm with Nvidia's product page if the graphic card can use all 3 ports simultaneously.

According to this forum entry it does not. As far as I know, you will need a second card to do this, or a high end card.

I can't say for you card specifically, though typically support for more than two displays from a single card has been reserved for the Quadro line. The new GTX 680 does support triple displays, so there is hope that the entire 600 will support it.

The entire 600 series BETTER support it - this is one area where AMD has been ahead of Nvidia for several generations now! – Shinrai Apr 2 '12 at 15:57
