I just purchased a Lenovo M73 tower and upgraded the video card to the AMD Radeon HD8570. It has a VGA and HDMI output.  My system also has on-board graphics that has VGA and DisplayPort but it seems to be disabled.  We want to use 2 or 3 monitors with this system. Can anyone advise me how I can do this and what type of monitor connections I should use? thank you for your help. I probably should've checked into this before I chose this video card. I am seeing that most good quality monitors use DVI.

Thank you to anyone who can help me!

WMudrockJr, thank you very  much for your help and I really appreciate your fast reply. Unfortunately, my AMD Radeon HD 8570 only has a VGA and a HDMI output, no DisplayPort. I purchased it because it had 2GB RAM and I thought it would provide the best streaming video performance.

I had an option to put in an AMD Radeon HD8470 in my new Lenovo system, which would've provided me with DP and VGA, but only 512MB RAM.

Can you advise me which is a better option? We want 2-3 monitors and to be able to stream graphics quickly and smoothly.

Thank you!
