So Ive been getting a lot into computer gaming and parents were generous enough to buy me a really nice iMac. Problem with the iMac is that there isn't the ability to play a lot of games and what not. Don't get me wrong, I love my iMac, I just find PC to be the way to go on gaming. Im looking to buy a pretty nice gaming computer from IBuyPower. I want to run 2 monitors, both being LED HD monitors. The computer I want to buy only has 1 HDMI output plugin. So I need to know if i need to buy a motherboard with 2 hdmi outputs, or can I buy a HDMI male to 2 HDMI female 1 and 2 out splitter cable adapter converter. If I want to run both monitors, am I stuck with running 1 HD and 1 VGA?

Display port is way to go as it is more supportive of Multiple monitors. Does monitors you have, have display port ?


It is not the motherboard ports should think of for gaming as would be an integrated video card, but a quality PCI-E Video card which has multiple connections for monitors and display port. Also provide you with better performance in gaming. RAM too.
