    socket


    I don't really understand, sorry.
    I will cap it and it will probably never be used.
    I guess you may be saying some internal work must be done if I involve this socket?

    Sorry for the confusion

    All machines have a graphics card built in (this is the blue port you have found)

    Many people get a machine with an extra graphics card, this gives better performance as it is higher quality than the built in one, however when this is done (on Dells anyway) the internal one is disabled (wasn't sure about them being disabled to start with)

    I am confusing myself now, but hope that makes things a bit clearer

    and yes, you can put the cap on and just ignore this port

    Thank you for the information. I never would have thought it was a graphics card.
    I will cap it and thanks again.

    if you want to have two monitors just use any of the two ports and in windows tell it which one you want to be primary under personalization. If your machine looks like below then that is what ports you have available to you if it's a two slot gpu.
