Can the H57 + i5 661 support dual monitors?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Picking up this for my work PC. Will be using this + intel i5 661 with the on chip GPU for software/web development. Just curious if these die's and this chipset can run dual monitors?

Multi-display support with ATI CrossFireX
H57M-USB3 supporting ATI CrossFireX delivers the ultimate in graphics performance for gaming enthusiasts who demand the highest frame rates without compromising on resolution.
(H57M-USB3 support software ATI CrossFireX only)
I think that means that you need another dedicated gpu for the second monitor.

If the onboard gpu has 2 video ports (dvi/hdmi/vga) then it should, and most matx motherboards do, but it doesnt specifically say.

EDIT: yes the gpu does support 2 monitors, but youll either need a vga cable and one dvi, or a converter from one to the other.
