Can I connect three monitors to the two video cards?


Have a PC with the following configuration:

Mat. Board: Gigabyte 970a-ds3p
CPU: AMD FX 4300
Video card: Nvidia GeForce 210 1024 Mb (DVI + HDMI + VGA)
Windows 7 x64
To a PC connected to two monitors - involved outputs VGA and HDMI.

Task: to Connect the third monitor.

Connect the third monitor to the DVI output, it is defined in Windows, but to extend the desktop to it it is impossible - only one of the outputs of either DVI, or VGA.

Question: how to connect a third monitor?

Considering the option of installing a second same graphics card as the motherboard two PCI-E slots. Will it be possible to extend the desktop to the third screen in this case?

Well, first, the invisible three monitors to connect was impossible (at that time on those maps), only two.
Second, it's written in the nVidia control panel.
Thirdly, Ubuntu, Geforce 210 and dual monitor?

Considering the option of installing a second similar graphics card
generally any will do, even the cheapest.
I do not quite understand the reference to a question about Ubuntu, GeForce 210 and dual monitor. They discussed the work of two monitors connected to one graphics card. And the issue was resolved by editing xorg, i.e. the problem was shubo configuration. I have the same question: could I potentially connect three monitors to two of the same graphics card and extend the desktop to these three monitors? The second video card does fly as an independent device of the video output? - alvera.Mraz commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:02
@alvera.Mraz, that's right - there's about only two monitor.

Where did she go? But it can still work, if not as an independent? - Genoveva.Abernathy94 commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:05
