Alright, as the title says, i already have 4 monitors, two on each graphic cards. I am getting a i5 2500K and an Asrock z68 extreme3 gen 3. I was wondering if it was possible to add a 5th monitor using the processor HD 3000?

iam not sure, but i think its either/or. (either VGA or integrated graphics) again i might be wrong but i believe thats how it goes because if you are using VGA and plug in another monitor in the HD 3000 it doesnt work

There is nothing plugged into the VGA, it is all on the graphic cards. I just wonder if i can have both my 460s along with the HD 3000 at the same time.

sorry for not making it clear, that is what i ment, all plugged in the 460. i dont think it will work, go ahead try plugging 3 on the 460 and 1 on the HD 3000. i've tried it before, i remember it didnt work.
