MSI H87M-G43 motherboard can accomodate 3 monitors. Do I need video card(s) too?

This is for a new machine build. Will the video results (NOT gaming) using just the motherboard be good enough? The main program I will be using on this system suggests requirement '32-bit graphics support - 256 MB or more for multiple monitors'.

  1. Yes if no gaming it will be fine to use the Intel HD IGP with that board. I am not sure you can run 3 monitors on that board though. Double checked it does triple http://www.msi.com/product/mb/H87M-G43.html#?div=Detail

    Reviewing the motherboard specs, I can not find that it meets the suggested requirement of '32-bit graphics support
    256 MB or more for multiple monitors'. I am not techie. Thanks

    That is because the GPU is on the Intel CPU that you are going to put on the board so you will have to look it up there!
  4. The cpu is i5 3.4 ghz 4670 6mb 4/4 and under specs I find the following
    Integrated graphics
    GPU Type: HD 4600
    Base frequency (MHz): 350
    Maximum frequency (MHz): 1200
    Does that meet the '32-bit graphics support 256 MB or more for multiple monitors' requirement?
  5. Yes it will meet that requirement.
  6. thanks rolli59 grandmaster
