So i'm wondering i have 2 Displays and on Display number 1 i'm using a HDMI connected to the GPU and i was wondering if i can connect Display number 2 using a VGA (As its VGA Only) to the motherboard and use iGPU to run the other display? Also will this effect my performance if i'm using my second display to play on?

CPU: Intel Pentium G4560 ((IGPU) Intel HD Graphics 610)
GPU: Nvidia GTX 1050Ti

Monitor 1: Phillps 227E [1920x1080] (HDMI & VGA)
Monitor 2: Samsung S22C150 [1920x1080] (VGA)

Yes you can do that.

However, if you try to run games on that second display, it'll use the iGPU and not your GPU to render the game, so expect really bad FPS on that screen.

Also, if you drag an internet page from one monitor to another and that page has an HTML5 video, the page will most likely crash.

Could i use a DisplayPort to VGA Adatper like this:

then plug my VGA cable into that then into the monitor?

(That way i'll only be using my GPU)
