Triple monitor with H77N-wifi plus Msi GT 620

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys
I have my actual PC, with 3 monitors. I'm using only two, but would like to know to get the 3rd one working
My PC
http://www.overclock.net/lists/display/view/id/5173671

The two -old- monitors are connected directly to the GT620, one directly to vga and the other using vga-dvi adapter. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64, latest drivers, ultramon, etc. and I'm planning on installing Linux Mint 15 Cinnamon and try to make these work there too

How could I connect the third display (a Samsung 23" with vga connector, newer than my actual two) using my config?

Thanks
BFD

Connect 1 display to the motherboard and the other 2 to the 620, or connect all 3 to the 620 as your 620 supports 3 monitors - none of these monitors have DVI or HDMI on them?

No, none of these "old" lcds have dvi nor hdmi

I'm kinda confused. I'm reading on google and other forums that NVidia GT series support more than 2 monitors from GT 640 and newer.

Also, how could I connect video to the motherboard and the gpu and make both run at same time? I thought one should choose between motherboard's video or gpu's video...

You can use the iGPU and Dedicated GPU at the same time, I have a setup running an Ivy Bridge chip + 7750 to enable 6 monitors

Could you share some info about how to acchieve that? Does it work under Windows only through some software/driver or Could I do that stuff also in Ubuntu, Linux Mint, etc?

Thanks
