Will Dual Display Eat Resources of CPU ? (Built in Card)


I have Intel Board, in which i am using Pentium Desktop Processor. This board also supports i7 processors, so i guess this board is not that old technology board.

Now it has two outputs from graphic card (which is builtin) one is normal/common monitor cable and one is dvi.

I was thinking to have dual monitors, as i am graphic designer. So do let me know if it is good idea or not.

My only concern is the CPU Resources, as this is for my work, so i am not thinking about extra electricity bill or desk space or etc. But CPU Resources/LOAD etc should be kept in mind as i need processor, ram in always charming condition.

Kindly do reply me.

  1. What CPU specifically?

    In usual windows usage, you wont notice any difference. If you are doing intensive 3d work (which I suspect you aren't, if you are using integrated graphics) you will see a performance drop.

    What programs do you use for graphic design?
  2. Sorry if i was not able to explain my problem properly. The real thing i want to know is, does it make any difference for graphic card, if there are two monitors connected on it or just one ?

    I use Photoshop, Illustrator etc. Not 3d and very huge ones.
