NVIDIA GeForce GT 635 1GB DDR3 question?

Jump to solution

I just ordered an 8700 with this video card in it and I cannot find any documentation at nvidia or on the dell site about the type of outputs this card has. I am sure it has a DVI but I do not know what else. I am planning to hook up two monitors and was trying to get a picture or specs on it. Does anyone have any information on it?

 

tks

Hi tedhebert,

Thanks for reaching out to us with your query. The nVidia GeForce GT 635 has a VGA, HDMI and DVI port. Few of these video cards can also be shipped with only HDMI and DVI ports. Check the below image which has VGA (blue) - HDMI (middle) and DVI (extreme right) ports:

If the second monitor does not have DVI/VGA/HDMI ports, you will need to buy a DVI-VGA adapter or HDMI-VGA adapter accordingly. 

Thanks and Regards

OK thank you, one other question, both monitors are older dell square monitors with dvi and VGA inputs but no HDMI. If the card has the VGA along with the dvi and HDMI, can I hook one dvi and the other monitor vga, two cables out the card one VGA to VGA on monitor and the other dvi to dvi on monitor?

I know I have to set the properties in windows display for two monitors but I am unsure if the video card will push video out of those two different type ports at the same time

Great thank you for the links, I think my main question was if the video card will simultaneously send video through the dvi and vga out or dvi and hdmi out. Nvidia does not have specification information for this particular model number of video card. I would like to know before I have to buy a connector for hdmi since I already have a vga cable ready to go

Yes, the nVidia video card will simultaneously send video to both the monitor using DVI and VGA ports. Connect the primary monitor using the DVI cable and the second monitor using VGA cable.

You say that some are shipped with only HDMI and DVI ports.  Is there a way to request two DVI ports rather than one being VGA when ordering?

I just took delivery on my XPS 8700. That DVI port is not the same as the DVI ports I am use to. The one on my monitor is much bigger than this one. The documentation hints (all the other adapters in the documentation say optional) that there should be an adapter in the box but there is none. Am I missing something or is there an adapter I need to buy?
