Windows 7: How to connect additional DVI monitor to HDMI port

16 Nov 2011   #11

Windows 10 Pro x64 x3, Ubuntu

The problem, and the good thing :) , with all technology is the pace of improvement, involved, we often only look at the latest options.

It was not that long ago that the PCI-e x1 was the state of the art with regards to graphics buses, and it should still be possible to obtain reasonable quality output from one of these older fit cards - especially for a 3rd or 4th monitor on the system

Hope you find what you are looking for :)

Windows 7 Pro 64

OK conclusions:

I bought a card called PNY NVS 300 X 1 (not X 16). This card has two outputs that can be either VGA or DVI-I and it works simultaneously with my other card GeForce 210 and with the onboard DVI port for a total of 5 monitors.

The good thing in this PCIeX1 solution is that there is still one more PCIe X 1 slot if more monitors are needed.

I hope this is helpful for somebody and thanks to those who tried to help me.

Use HDMI or DVI to connect monitor to computer.
Hello all, I have a quick question. My new graphics card has a HDMI port and I was wondering if there is any advantage of using that port to connect my graphics card to my monitor over the normal DVI port? Is it worth buying the cable that I would need to do this> many thanks,
