  1. It's not possible. If your CPU has intergrated graphics you can either use that (through the motherboard) or your GPU, but not both.
  2. When running a card you won't get a signal out of the board's video ports. What card you using? It might be able to run the 3rd monitor.
  3. I have an GeForce GTX 770 2GB PhysX CUDA windforce:-)
  4. When graphic card is on the motherboard, you cannot use the video output ports on motherboard.
  5. Alright, your card has one HDMI, one DisplayPort, one DVI-I, and one DVI-D port. It's probably able to run three monitors with that configuration.

    What ports are currently being used?
  6. HDMi and DVI-I, but i dont have an displayPort or an DVI-D port am i going to buy one?
  7. What ports does your third monitor have? We need to know what to convert to know what converter you need.
  8. an VGA porn is an old one so ...

    If that third monitor is the only one that uses VGA, you need to get this converter http://tinyurl.com/nzx3etd
    and use it on the DVI-I port of the graphics card so that you can connect it to that monitor with a VGA cable. The monitor that was previously using the DVI-I port should be able to use the DVI-D port.

    If you have two monitors that can only accept VGA, one of them will require an active converter like this one http://tinyurl.com/kbcyc6m
    so that the digital-only signal from the DVI-D port can be converted into analog signal that VGA requires.
