I am currently using the G75 notebook and have an external monitor hooked up through the VGA port for dual screens.

I'm wondering if it's possible to have 3 screens if I use an HDMI cable to hook up to another monitor or TV.

Has anyone done this?? Is the video card capable of this??

Just a few questions before I buy my next monitor..Thanks!!

I've been reading up on some forums and simple google searches and it definitely seems possible, I guess my main question is has anyone here done it since we are all basically using the same computers (W.R.T. mobos, RAM, GPU)

Sites I've looked at makes it seem like no problem:

Edit: lol at the title of this post was the captcha I has to type in...can't edit the title, whoops.

I'm running two external monitors, one via HDMI and one via mini Displayport. Works very well.

Guess you guys missed my post ( just yesterday ) where I hooked up 3 external monitors to my G75VW.

All 4 displays work simultaneously ... laptop, HDMI output, VGA output, and minidisplay output.

See the other thread if you want a picture ... it all works.
