    Using 3 monitors on an HP 6804

    I was helping someone who wants to add a third monitor to his HP6804. He currently has dual monitors already. How can I go about helping him do this? The motherboard has an integrated VGA & DVI and those are what is currently in use. The specs say they become disabled if you install a video card.

    you add a video card with the support needed unless you want to show everything the same on all 3 which you can get an adapter to do.

    While I realize that, is there any way to get the built-in video ports to not be disabled when inserting a video card. The motherboard only has (2) PCIeX1 slots and I cannot seem to find a multiple monitor video card in that format.

    There are a bunch of cards with dual DVI + hdmi which you can use an adapter for that or there are even models with triple DVI
    here this one supports 4

    But that is a PCIeX16, and the mobo only has PCIeX1.

    I saw ATI/AMD Eyefinity, but they do not seem to have PCIeX1 either.

    You'll likely need something like this. > http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16814161354
    You'll have to read though the details to be sure it can run 3 monitors but I do believe Eyefinity cards can.
    More choices here. > http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...20Express%20x1
    I don't know the same things you don't know.
