Can I use all monitor ports with Dual Graphics?

My computer as an A8-3800 APU with AMD Radeon HD 6550D. The computer has 2 DVI ports. I use both DVI ports for 2 monitors. If I get a HD 6670 to enable dual graphics, will it let me continue to use the 2 DVI ports on the motherboard and 2 of the 3 video ports on the 6670 for a max of 4 displays?

I want to get a HD 6670 with HDMI to connect to the TV.

Thanks for help.

  1. Yes, you should be able to use all of them.
    If the only reason you want the 6670 for is HDMI, look into a DVI to HDMI adaptor. Granted it won't carry sound but it should do the job.
  2. I still need the 2 DVI ports for monitors so a DVI->HDMI won't work. Plus its for TV so I need sound.

    I have a HP P7-1174. I just saw HP specifications for the video graphics says
    *Integrated video is not available if a graphics card is installed.

    Is dual graphics dependent on the motherboard and bios? Or did they just say that in case someone puts like a Nvidia or some other card without dual graphics compatibility?
  3. Well it would work when you run dual graphics, because dual graphics is just like crossfire where two cards work together :). However by looking at HP specs I don't think you can dual graphic your system, I don't have this HP but I just go by the specification they provide. It's better not to risk to waste your money :). That's what bad of buying prebuild. However you can get a 6770 which should support 4 monitors. Here is it:

    Oh yes, I forget, you need to upgrade your PSU, thanks striker 410!
  4. He can't get a 6770 without getting a new PSU.
