Triple monitor setup Precision 5520

I'm thinking about going for triple monitor setup, but I have a lack of knowledge & ideas to do this. Let's say I have three identical dell monitors, how can I set them up? using which ports, display & graphic setting.

The Precision 5520 only has two video out ports =
HDMI 1.4
USB Type-C Thunderbolt

So you need to look into getting a Dock that supports three monitors. Something like the TB16.

Re: Triple monitor setup Precision 5520

Chris,

I also have the dell M5520 precision laptop and based on your reply, just want to know if I can drive two external monitors using the one HDMI and the one Thuderbolt port?  

 

  -   If the answer is yes, can they be set so that they are additional screen spaces vs mirroring the laptop display?

 

Thanks,

All three at once, Laptop LCD and two external monitors, I don't think so. Perhaps lid closed, monitor on USB Type- C as Primary, monitor on HDMI as secondary? Which is why I referenced the TB16. You simply need to test it (Laptop LCD and two external monitors) and post the results for us.
