2008 iMac + LED Cinema Display + Cintiq?

I've been looking for an answer to this and so far it seems pretty impossible...but maybe someone here can help.

I currently own an early 2008 iMac (20") and it is connected to an LED Cinema Display (24") through a converter, because my iMac didn't have the mini display port that the Cinema Display used.

I've been looking into getting a Wacom Cintiq, the 21X. I'm wondering if it's possible to run all 3 of these at once, essentially having 3 monitors.

There might be some resolution issues that prevent it so I'm kind of hoping to get a solid answer and to see if there's any way to get around the varying resolutions. My iMac is 1680 × 1050 and the Cintiq should be 1600 x 1200.

Can I even attempt this? If by some miracle I can, what kind of adapters do I need?
