Running two monitors on a 8570w without a docking station

Is it possible to run two monitors on a 8570w without a docking station. Connecting one monitor to the VGA port and the other to the display port.

I'm hoping to get an answer before I purchase an 8570w. Thanks.

Re: Running two monitors on a 8570w without a docking station

the sales blurb has this to say:

Multi-task on multiple screens at once or view enlarged content across
up to five additional displays.

but below it does say:

4.   Support for 5 monitors requires separately purchased HP Advance Docking Station.
5.   HP offers discrete graphics configurations supporting up to five total displays through the advanced docking station. The advanced docking station is sold separately. AMD graphics supports five total
displays, including the native notebook display. NVIDIA graphics supports up to four total displays, including the native notebook display.

This guy seems to indicate that it will work:

"Working from home I also hook it up to 2+1920x1200 using DisplayPort + DSUB (VGA) port."
