11. Anything else which you would like to say?
Ans:I already have a DELL Pc from 2007, but wanted to connect the WACOM 13HD drawing monitor to an HDMI. I was hoping to change the mother board and processor. Checked out the Mid Range gaming PC configuration in Digit magazine.
The ASUS B85M-G has triple monitor setup with HDMI, VGA and DVI port. Can I get just the board and processor to connect the triple monitor (without investing in a Graphics Card). My main need is to run 3 monitors simultaneously with one HDMI connected to the WACOM 13 HD graphics monitor tablet. Or I may run one monitor and the Wacom 13 HD. Kindly mention if for the new motherboard a new Power supply unit is necessary?
Thanks in advance. Proud digit subscriber since many years.
