Adding A Third Display

I was moving my computer and noticed I had a 3rd display port that is connected to the motherboard. I currently run 2 displays off of my graphics card.

Is it possible to run a 3rd display off of the motherboard port?

Here is the motherboard I'm using: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157185

  1. I'd have to go with no on this one. Mostly because when you run a dedicated GPU, the integrated graphics in your processor is turned off. In some cases with an APU and a GPU you can because you can crossfire them. What GPU do you have?

    I'm using this card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125300 (That's a GPU right?)
  3. You can run 3 displays off that one card. Just run 2 of the displays off DVI and one off HDMI. Although I wouldn't be gaming on multiple displays with that card, as it only has 1GB of VRAM.

    You can run 3 displays off that card,but not that way.
    Even the newest AMD cards cant run more than 2 DVI/HDMI/VGA signals at once,its required that one display is ran though an active display port.
    DisplayPort+HDMI+DVI or Displayport+2DVI is your options.

    If your monitor doesn't support DisplayPort,you can get an active Displayport->HMDI adapter.

    Edit: Here's one active adapter example
