I have a Aspire here with a decent video card! I am upgrading the RAM - and I heard it does do a big difference with the graphics on this model! Radeon 7640G - I already tested it with one external TV and it worked fantastic with flight simulator on high settings!
Just wait for the RAM upgrade! Someone wrote a review on this laptop on Amazon specifying upgrading the RAM has done a great difference with the graphics score.
So I want to do that, and I also want to add TWO monitors! They wouldn't be used for gaming - just for productivity.
I would want to use the laptop display and the two monitors on each side.
However, could it be possible to do this? I would extend the displays to all three displays. I know AMD's software allows this but I'm not sure with the wiring setup, and what to look for?
Could I buy a HDMI two to one cable (not sure the proper name, I know we use them for DVR setups - octopus cables) and hook that up to my laptop and then it would see ALL three displays?
OR do I need to buy a box, hook that into my HDMI or VGI output, and then hook in the two monitors to the box?
I am tech savvy (taking computer maintenance in college and it is boring because I haven't learned anything new and I'm done almost with a bachelors), but this I am not too sure on. I know with a desktop, you could do it if it had the number of outputs, etc. But I am not sure with laptops so this will be a learning experience!
