no you can use one of the ports to get signal from your integrated graphics located on the cpu itself. to get dual you need a dedicated graphics card

Intel's GPU supports two monitors. I know, because I'm running two monitors off the HD3000 and one off the GTX 560ti.

So yes, it will work.

I say no from experience. Maybe newer motherboard can support two monitors with just using on-board video.

If I wanted maybes and inaccurate answers I would just stick to newegg reviews.

Ill have to give gigabyte a call to find out if their motherboard supports 2 screens I guess.

Well that's rude.

Not really, we come here seeking professional reviews and answers to learn from and instead we get people with maybes lol.

Whats the point in replying to a thread that asks for help if you dont know how to help

That motherboard will work with 2 monitors just fine if you are using Windows 7 or Windows 8 most likely Vista also. Intel integrated GPU's have supported dual monitors for a while now. I know the 3000 and 4000 atleast support it. I am not a expert on intel hardware but have worked on quite a few of them and have had many of them connected to to monitors when working on them and they do work just fine.

It is a definite yes depending on the hardware you are using. In the case of this motherboard dual monitors work just fine.
