2 Monitors from a build-in GPU (G4560) and a Mobo with DVi and HDMI - possible?

Hi everyone. 

 

Curious about this. 

 

I am using the G4560 CPU from Intel (I think it's a Pentium). 

 

My Motherboard (can't remember which one right now) which has 1 DVI out and 1 HDMI out. 

 

Was wondering if I can connect another monitor to it (for a total of 2) (both 1080). 

 

Don't want to buy a monitor only to realize my CPU or Mobo can't even push 2 monitors. 

 

Thanks so much.

Technically your iGPU supports 3 displays, though that doesn't matter if you only have 2 display outputs on the motherboard. 2 1080p displays is perfectly fine for your system.

Can I follow up on this question? 

 

If I want to push 3 monitors from this CPU/iGPU, do I need to purchase a special Mobo which has 3 ports for video out? 

 

I was doing a little searching and most have 1, some have 2 - like one HDMI and one DVI. But not 3. Which is weird, I guess. 

 

Did you ever encounter a Mobo which has 3 video out ports? 

 

Thanks again!
