post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey. i am planning to buy a MSI Z87-GD65 GAMING and i am wondering if i could plug in one of my displays trough the hdmi port and the other through the dvi port?

and what is the max resolutions at the same time on each screen?

Not sure about that because it would be using the iGPU on your processor.

What you are wanting to do is most commonly done on a discrete graphics card or two.

You would be able to use dvi and hdmi for your displays at the same time on any modern graphics card. You will want a highish-end one for gaming on both.

Yeah, you can run two displays from the motherboard using the internal GPU on the CPU. You could actually run a third one using the VGA connection. The Intel 4th gen CPUs(and 3rd gen) support up to 3 displays from the on board GPU.

1080P with both screens will be no problem. Same with 1920x1200.
Things start to get sketchy once you start using 2560x1600 monitors because HDMI 1.4 does not support that resolution at 60Hz refresh rate. You could go that high with the DVI port.

Performance with 2 displays will not be the best, should be fine if you don't plan to do any gaming. If you are going to be playing games, get a dedicated GPU.
