Hi,

I just got a new system, comprising of the following:

MSI z77a-gd65
i5-3570k
Sapphire hd 7850

I have a dual monitor setup, but the problem is that one is dvi/vga, and the other is just vga. This means that I can only hook up one to the 7850, and I'll need to get an adapter to use the other. In the mean time, I would like to be able to hook up my other monitor to my motherboard's vga out port, and use the i5's integrated graphics to run it. Is this possible? I've tried enabling the IGD multi-monitor option in the bios, but that didn't help.

Thanks

Hi
I have the about the same system except i have a Powercolor HD 5770 card and want to use intel integrated graphics for my second monitor. Have you figured out how it can be done? Does anyone know?

Thankx

You cannot use two separate graphic cards at the same time AFAIK (unless you're running SLI/CF). Just buy an adapter and enjoy using two screens :)
