i know that being able to dual monitor or not depends on what sort of graphics card you have. With the pc i have i dont have an actual graphics card i am using the Integrated graphics that came with my Processor. Will i still be able to dual Monitor with the integrated graphics or would i HAVE to have an actual graphics card. The motherboard itself has a VGA port which is what the current Monitor is on. a HDMI port and a Dual link DVi port. These are what i have for a processor and a motherboard if it helps.

-AMD A10-7850K 3.7GHz Quad-Core Processor

-MSI A78M-E35 Micro ATX FM2+ Motherboard


Welcome to SuperUser.

Google is your friend: Simply searching for your motherboard model brought me to MSI's product page which says in the specs that it can support up to three displays, provided your CPU has an onboard GPU, which it obviously does:


  • This platform supports dual-display function (HDMI+VGA, HDMI+DVI, VGA+DVI) and triple-display function (HDMI+VGA+DVI)

MSI Reminds You...The graphic output can only work with CPUs with GPUs core inside.

FYI, In my experience, if the motherboard has multiple onboard video outputs it can support multiple displays. I don't know if this is always the case, this is just my observation.
