hi,
I want to have a 2nd monitor for my computer but my graphic card ports do not work.
This means that I only have 1 DVI port I can use.

When observing the inside of my pc I found there is an empty pcei1 on the motherboard I can connect ports to.
How can I find a pcei1 connector with an HDMI or DVI port I can use for 2nd monitor? Also, how do I tell if it is the right size?

What graphics card do you currently have installed? If it has multiple outputs, they should work.

hello
My current graphics card is Gigabyte GV-R939G1 GAMING-8GD. I made a post about it yesterday in the graphic card forum but have yet to get a solution.

Thank you for the website it seems useful. The RAM seems to be little, do you think it will be a problem for me as I multitask a lot? sorry but I am not very knowledgeable about this subject.

You should not be having any problems running multiple displays from that graphics card. Be sure you have the both PCI-E power connections from the PSU connected to the graphics card (PCI-E 6+2 and PCI-E 6 with the +2 left hanging).

Looking at your other thread I noted you have an Intel Core I7-6700 processor installed. If the card in question (or the power supply) is failing, then I would suggest that the on-board graphics of your processor would be sufficient for your secondary monitor. Connect your secondary display to the motherboard outputs. Boot into BIOS and look for a setting that enables the on-board graphics.

If you let me know the make and model number of the motherboard, I can probably find that setting in the user's manual.
