What to choose: HP EliteDesk 800 G5 Mini with i7 or HP EliteDesk 800 G5 Small Form Factor with i7?

HP Recommended
EliteDesk 800 G5 Mini with i7
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am hesitating in choosing between buying one of two computers: 

1. The HP EliteDesk 800 G5 Mini with i7

2. The HP EliteDesk 800 G5 Small Form Factor with i7

https://store.hp.com/UKStore/Merch/Product.aspx?id=7QM92EA&opt=ABU&sel=DTP

 

Aside from the obvious differences of size and expandability, they appear to be the same systems. My main concern now, before I purchase, is would the mini support three monitors? The monitor I chose is the HP EliteDisplay E243 23.8" FHD IPS Monitor ( https://store.hp.com/UKStore/Merch/Product.aspx?id=1FH47AT&opt=ABU&sel=MTO . Do I need an expansion card to run the third monitor simultaneously? It seems that the standard Mini and the standard Small Form Factor support only two monitors. Is this true?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks and regards.

@Salman04 , welcome to the forum.

 

It appears that both computers have 2xDisplayPort 1.2.  This would only allow for two monitors. You could consider a USB 3.0 video adapter: https://www.startech.com/display-adapters

 

The only concern that I would have is the power supply.  I believe it is 65W and this may be the reason for only two DP's.  I suggest that you consider this possibility.
