    Having my own room for a shack now with room to expand I would like to add a monitor(s) to my PC running I-5 6600K on an Asus Z-170A motherboard. Currently using a single 32 in monitor 1920 X 1080 and the MoBo video card that I like but a brain tumor damaged my optic nerve a few years back leaving me with some visual impairment, eyeballs are fine nerve connecting them to the brain is not. I would like to try spreading out over an additional screen to determine if it is easier for me to use. Can someone recommend a video or graphics card that would support adding an additional monitor? Thanks for reading.

    I believe the mb you have will support multiple monitors with the built-in intel graphics support of the I5 processor. You should be able to use integrated vga, displayport and hdmi. Check your mb documentation to verify.

    dont know your stuff but i ran 4 monitors on win 98,running 2 on w 7 laptop,2 on linux?
    u may need another/2nd, vid card that works in multi monitor mode.
    your system may start with both mon alike/duplicated. you need to set for extended displays,one on left, one one right.
    you can rotate 90 deg for upright. good for long text.
