Quick question for anyone that can answer this.
Can I connect 3 monitors using only on-board graphics. There are 2 display port and a vga on the mother board and currently dual display is setup using both display port.
Realistically I am not looking for a true 3rd monitor but rather that the 2nd monitor is duplicated on the 3rd monitor; is this possible?
I was thinking about trying a display port splitter and having the second and 3rd monitors both run off of a single display port using the splitter.
Figured it was easier to ask then spend about $100 for the splitter and a long cable to try and find out it won't work.
Edit for clarification: The setup trying to be used is 2 actual monitors with the 3rd screen being a TV to do presentations. Leadership/managers/execs want the first screen to be able to do work and have a "private" screen so to speak while hosting presentations on the 2nd screen, allowing them to see it from the monitor as opposed to also needing to control the presentation from the TV/3rd screen, which would be duplicated on the 3rd screen.
While I can think of quite a few alternatives in designing a new system to incorporate this need I am being told to do this, if possible in any way, with the equipment in hand minus potentially a few new cables.
I have also considered buying a few "cheap" graphics cards to allow for a better solution and recommended this but as of yet I am not seeing willingness to use this solution.
