My graphics card has 3 ports - VGA, DVI and HDMI.

I have connected 2 monitors to the VGA and DVI ports and it is working fine.


Can I connect another monitor to the HDMI port?
Is it going to work?
Someone told me that I cannot use DVI and HDMI together as both are using digital signal.

Some nVidia cards have more than 2 output connectors, but most can only support 2 maximum.

I may be wrong but I'm fairly sure only 5xxx series Radeon cards can do 3 monitors out of a single card, and maybe the newest Nvidia cards but not sure about that. Anyway they do it by using DisplayPort, and then HDMI/DVI/VGA for the other 2.

^ AMD can do up to 6 monitors per card on the high-end models. With Nvidia, you need two cards in SLI to drive 3 displays.
