Is it possible to use three monitors on this machine? (I am copying in description and link below)

Good Evening,

Wanted to see if I could potentially use three monitors with this desktop? I am copying the link below for exact description. Please kindly advise! If I am unable to use three monitors, I will just purchase two larger monitors. I just would like to know if possible. Thank you in advance!

just about any system can display on 3 monitors if you add the right... add-in video card and have monitors with the correct inputs/adapters

 

also note that some systems disable the onboard (integrated video) when adding a video card 

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

your model quickspecs  states 3 monitor support: (using monitors with displayport connections) and a addin video card

 

https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03832938

 

unless you have or are willing to buy monitors with displayport inputs you will not be able to use the onboard video for 3 displays meaning you will need a addin video card and such a card will most likely cost more than the HP 800 G1 system

 

i personally recommend not using SFF  (small form  factor) systems as they are next to impossible to upgrade

 

a  HP z620 "Microtower" system like this is a better choice

Hi DGroves,

Thank you for responding. So for the link I posted and SFF machine I have, it sounds like the only way to use three monitors is to add in a new video card. Do you have any recommendations on external video cards I could try to make this work?

the card needed will depend on what your monitors support for video in the only hard things are 30 watts or less and low profile

 

a nvidia 710 is one such card
