DUAL MONITOR QUESTION!
Sep 2, 2012, 2:58 AM
I just have a quick question regarding hooking up external monitors to my laptop and hope that you guys might have an answer.
I currently have a DELL XPS 16 with a ATI mobility radeon HD 5730 1 GB and am looking to connect two external monitors.
I have a vga input, displayport, and a HDMI input.
What would be the best configuration to use so that that monitors will look the same both color and display wise.
I was thinking monitor 1 HDMI and monitor 2 display port converter to dvi?
Any suggestions would be great!

I would assume your right, about using display and hdmi rather than the vga.

alright thats what I figured but I just want to make sure running one monitor with a HDMI cable and another with a converter won't effect the display.
