I am wondering if anyone knows whether I can use 4+ monitors with my current system configuration:
Dell XPS 8900 with a GeForce GTX 745 graphics card.
I currently have 3 monitors using DVI, VGA and HDMI connectors. I am wondering whether I can connect a fourth monitor to the onboard DisplayPort connector as well? Since the graphics card only supports three monitors, I may have to remove one of the existing (DVI, VGA or HDMI) and daisychain or use a hub for a second DP monitor.
Can I have two DP monitors and two of either DVI, VGA or HDMI with this system?
Asking because Dell customer service over the phone did not have an answer.
Re: GeForce GTX 745 Compatible with DisplayPort MST?
The GeForce GTX 745 cannot drive a dual monitor daisy chain because that video card does not have a DP or mDP out port.
The XPS 8900 onboard DP out port cannot drive a dual monitor daisy chain.
There are three options for video port usage on the XPS 8900, all based on what you choose in the Bios- Display;
* Set it to Multi Display Disabled, Primary Display Intel HD Graphics - Remove the added PCIe x16 video card from the system - Use either the onboard HDMI out or onboard DisplayPort out
* Set it to Multi Display Disabled, Primary Display Nvidia HD Graphics - Use the added PCIe x16 video card as your only Graphics - The onboard HDMI out and onboard DisplayPort out are turned OFF
* Set it to Multi Display Enabled, Primary Display AUTO - The onboard HDMI out is Primary - The onboard DisplayPort out is Secondary - The added PCIe x16 video card ports are Tertiary, Quaternary, Quinary
