need a simple answer very much appreciated.

Harry:
Given your information (which was almost nothing), the simple answer is–
depends on the video card or system.
On a laptop, yes, two ports might work at same time. But the laptop screen will not. That is because most laptops have just two video streams.
On a video card in a desktop, maybe. Some cards can do two or more streams, depending on internal circuits. Some cards have 3 or more ports, but can do only two video streams unless you use a (some) Displayport adapter(s). Some cards have an HDMI and a DVI-D port but only one at a time will work.
Most makers of those cards will not publicly admit any limitations because it makes competitors look better.
DeMoNsLaYeR575:
yes…
also RT is wrong… you can use ALL outputs from any number of video cards at the same time (i have 4 monitors on my 680, 1 hdmi, 2 DVI and 1 display port with no issues)
stan l:
Yes.
R T:
If they are on two different video cards (or two different ports of a dual video card), yes it will work. If you only have one video card, then you get one output.
chrisjbsc:
Yes.
Harry:
Yes – it will, this is an extension to the question you asked yesterday about your 960.
