3 Monitor Setup Using Intel HD 2500

Hey! I want to set up a 3 monitor setup from my onboard video outputs (HDMI, VGA, DVI). I'm using the in-built graphics for an i5-3330 CPU, which is the Intel HD 2500. What I'm wanting to know is, how can I have a three monitor setup if I am running 1 monitor off each output. Is this possible? If so, how could I do it???
Thanks for any help.

  1. Last time i checked its dual output only

    You need dual video cards or a basic eyefinity setup

    Some mid AMD/ATI video cards are tripple out at least

    That's what I thought. but reading the Intel site http:// it says that I should be able to do it.
  3. Check your mobo chipset type, wiki has a nice table of FDI complient mobo's (FDI stands for Friendly Display Interface) if you have FDI then you should be able to run 3 monitors, even on a HD 2500, but make sure your monitors that run on the digital outs (HDMI and DVI) have same pixel counts and refresh rates. If you have FDI then you can also run a PCIe dedicated card and still use your onboard graphics ports for more monitors (requires some careful setting up in BIOS), just follow the matched digital output rules again. With Nvidia that's 2 monitors on dedicated and 3 on your mobo, grand total 5 monitors, if you have an AMD dedicated graphics card you can run 3 and 3, grand total 6. The down side of all these setups is you can only run games on your primary monitor. Note: basic Windows Vista and 7 will only ever run 1 monitor. Goodluck :D
