Advice on Multi Monitor Set Up Professional

Alright guys and gals, I'm upgrading my computer and work area finally to support dual monitors etc. This is what I want, and I'd love some suggestions on what I should choose based on your experiences.

What I use and have now:
XP w/ 512MB PC800 RAM
WD 80G 7200 Drive
WD 40G 7200 Drive
80GB Firewire External Drive
Promise Ultra133 controller card
DVD ROM, 48X CDR, Sony DRU-500A DVD -/+ R -/+RW
Nvidia GeForce 2 Ultra 64MB
4 port FireWire PCI Card
19" Sony Trinitron Flat CRT VGA

Post Software:
Premiere 6.5
Photoshop 7.0
DvdIt PE

GL2 w/ 4k worth of other stuff from ZOTZ THE BEST!

I want a dual monitor setup for my work area in Premiere. I would also like a Professional NTSC/PAL monitor to preview output from Premiere. I would rather not deal w/ any Canopus/Pinnacle products, as I really don't need all that software etc. I'd like to achive what I want with just one more 19" CRT and then a NTSC monitor hooked up to a dual or 3 monitor display card. Is this possible using Premiere and what I have now? Thanks for your time guys/gals!

There are two possibilities for sure and one I'm not totally sure

1. leave your camera connected and on and you can hook up
your TV/broadcast monitor to that

2. get a dedicated board like canopus

3. I heard that there is a card out by ATI that support video
overlay on all of its output connectors (which other graphics
cards do not!!!) and you might be able to open the preview
window on that screen and maximize it or something? This is
the one I'm not to sure on...
