Hello,

I just ordered an Inspiron 3847, with Intel HD Graphics 4600. It came with only one VGA connection and one HDMI connection.

I want to do a dual monitor set up, with Dell P2214H monitors. However, I see that those monitors have DisplayPort, VGA, and DVI-D connections.

It appears to me that there is no easy solution, given the setup. I thought about from the monitor:


    DisplayPort cable, DisplayPortHub, then an HDMI to DVI Adapter
    DVI to HDMI Cable, thenHDMI Hub, which does not appear to work as the DisplayPort hub, just splitting the signal?


I wanted to be able to use the full HD capabilities of both monitors, and I see it states on the website for the Intel HD Graphics Card that it can support up two 3 monitors, in 1080p:

Are there other solutions I am not thinking of? Should I return the computers and ask for a different Video card, with 2 DisplayPort connections or 2 HDMI connections?

Thank you
