I am using a Radeon HD 6450 and am running windows 7.

I currently have two monitors connected using DVI and VGA.  I also have an HDTV connected using HDMI.

 

With all three connected, I can only select two monitors at the same time.  I usually extend my desktop onto the second monitor, but occasionally extend my desktop to my HDTV.

I want to add a third monitor, so that I have an extended desktop to all three monitors with the ability to switch one  of the monitors out for my HDTV when needed.

My Radeon HD 6450 only has those three ports, DVI, VGA and HDMI.

Is there anyway to extend my display to a third monitor with this card?

I have seen products such as this:

http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-External-Video-Monitor-Adapter/dp/B005G306I2/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1358189214&sr=8-2&keywords=usb+to+vga

which claim to be able to add a VGA monitor without an internal graphics card. 

Would something like this work along with my current graphics card?

Also, I am looking to do this without installing a new graphics card.

Thanks,

Any help would be great.
