All, apologies for the newbie question. I have a HP6210F and need to be able to use upto 3 monitors. The HP6210F has a "NVIDIA GeForce 9100 Graphics with 256MB integrated shared graphics memory". Can someone tell me if this is possible and if so - what card would you recommend?
The x1 slots aren't meant for graphics cards. They use the x16 slot and you likely only have one.
The new ATI HD5xxx series cards support three monitors at once("eyefinity") so look at an HD5750 or HD5770. These are gaming cards and cost around $150 however.
thanks you are correct, i do have one PCI Express x16 available. Ouch $150? Any thoughts on a USB monitor add-on? Do you know of any that work (my experience with them has been poor and also with limited resolution)?
I have the HP 6210f. The integrated 9100 is able to handle a dual-monitor setup (1 VGA, 1 DVI), but if you plug in a graphics card then the 9100 graphics will be disabled. It's either-or. Also, check the power supply to make sure there's enough power to spare for a graphics card.
