I am looking to get this motherboard:
in combo with i5 3570k ivy bridge w/IGP
the mobo has several different video outputs, but what I am wondering is will it support multiple displays at the same time?
in other words, if I hook a monitor up to the hdmi port and another monitor to the dvi port, will i be able to extend my desktop to the second monitor or will I need as dedicated graphics card?
"Integrated graphics are underpowered for 3D gaming (see: IGP-vs-IGP Benchmarks later in ths review) but well suited to regular office-type desktop work with one or more monitors (see: IGP-PCMark Vantage Benchmarks). The integrated graphics outputs on the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H support HDMI at 1920x1200 pixels, DisplayPort at resolutions up to 2560x1600, DVI-D at 1920x1200 and Analog VGA. This board can handle dual digital displays with Sandy Bridge CPUs or triple displays for Ivy Bridge CPUs."
