    hello, running 2 monitors on 2 gpus?

    eraser

      i have an intel i5 6400 cpu, a dedicated gpu and a 2 monitors setup. Can i run one monitor on the integrated gpu and the other on the dedicated one ? If so, how? I need this because one of the monitors only works on the dedicated gpu, but as the gpu is very weak I cannot play games on it, so i want to play games on the other monitor conected at the integrated gpu which is far better than the dedicated one, but at the same time i  need the other monitor for other things. Thanks !

          Hello eraser,

          In regard to your concern, I would like to confirm the model of your current motherboard. This is in order to confirm the graphic compatibility with it and additional details.

          As soon as you reply I will provide further details to you.

          I am looking forward to hearing from you.

            hi, my mb is asus b150m -k

            when i power on the pc only one monitoractivates ( the other one as i told you does not work with the integrated graphic nore it activates when i connect it to the dedicated gpu the primary gpu being the integrated one), after all of this, when pc was powered on i plugged the second monitor to the mb also and it activated also, but not at the resolution that i want (it has 2560X 1600 max), the resolution is very very low. When i connect both of the monitors to the dedicated gpu all is fine, but i cannot play the games i desire
