Question 3 monitors on GA-A320M-S2H/Ryzen 3 3200G

Aug 3, 2020

I'm just putting together a spec in preparation for building a PC for a friend

He needs to have 3 monitors connected. The machine will be used just for business stuff so no high end power needed like for gaming etc.

I'm thinking of pairing a Gigabyte GA-A320M-S2H motherboard with Ryzen 3 3200G APU. From what I've read, the Ryzen 3200G will support up to 4 monitors. The motherboard has HDMI, VGA and DVI outputs so the question I'm wondering is would I be able to use all three connectors to drive the three independent monitors (ie desktop expanded across three monitors)? The monitors he has all have HDMI and VGA connectors so that's two of the connectors dealt with and I was thinking of using a bi-directional DVI to HDMI cable for the other monitor.

I've not used three displays in this way before but I presume it'll work OK?

The alternative would be to get a separate video card with multiple outputs like the Asus GT710 with 4 x HDMI ports but I'm trying to keep the costs down hence looking at this first option
