860m Dual Monitor


Nov 21, 2015
Looking to have a dual monitor setup with my Alienware 13. Don't want to daisy chain the DisplayPort as monitors with DP input and output are at a pretty high premium. Can I just hook up a hdmi cable to one output and a DP cable to the other (so that I'm using BOTH available outputs of the 860m at the same time)?
