I'd suggest something around a 21' inch screen size, as larger monitors tend to burn a bigger hole in your pocket. Acer has some alright 20' monitors for $90 each. (probably the cheapest you'll find for that size)
Addressing your triple monitor question, I would suggest getting a small graphics card, not for the GPU or gaming, just one that can handle 3 displays. If you're not interested in getting an extra graphics card, I'd then suggest getting a DVI or VGA splitter. They're relatively cheap, and get the job done, although are harder to set up and harder to use, due the the splitter combining two monitors into one.
My recommendation would be getting three 20' Acer's, and an inexpensive 3-port graphics card. It'll be easier to set up and use than a splitter.
