Hi I have a question referring to connect 3 screens on my computer.
I have 2 DVI exits on my video card both with VGA adapters on it for my 2 current screens.
Iím about to buy a new TV which I can connect to my computer trough VGA.
Is there a possibility to connect my TV with my onboard video card?

Welcome to bleepingcomputer!

I can't guarantee it, but I think you may be able to. I use to run two screens, one from my graphics card, and another from my integrated graphics (a game I played wasn't compatible with my graphics card) it worked fine that way.

Anyway it won't hurt to try once you get the new tv! If you need help with this process, let us know!

I don't know about nvidia but ATI recommends not leaving a TV hooked up if you are using 2 monitors.

With the right kind of video card & cable splitters you can have up to 4 monitors connected at the same time but the video cards usually aren't good for gaming & generally don't have a lot of memory.

I have a 32MB Matrox G2+/QUADP-PL & 2 split cables for 4 monitors left over from a security system.
