So I have an ASUS N76V with a GeForce GT 635M graphics card. I was testing if I could use my VGA and my HDMI port simultaneously and it worked.

Here I can see that the max resolution of my screen is 2560x1600 And for the VGA port it is 2048x1536. But what about HDMI? And does this count when they are both used?

Kind regards

HDMI is a digital connection thus the resolution for HDMI is 2560x1600. This graphics card only has a HDMI or VGA connection. – Ramhound Mar 8 '13 at 17:43
But my laptop has a VGA and a HDMI port. So you are saying that one of the two is not connected to my graphics card? – Martijn van den Bergh Mar 8 '13 at 17:44
I didn't say that. I said this hard only has two connections a digital connection and a VGA connection. – Ramhound Mar 8 '13 at 20:47

Those are the reference specs, not the Asus specs. Asus can limit it how they like.

Asus doesn't specify, but I would bet money they cap it at 1920x1080. They don't have to worry about folks accidentally going to high that way.

Only way to know for sure is to hook it up and test it, or ask Asus directly.
