Am looking at a video card for new comp. Was recommended the following card but I need to run 2 monitors for work purposes. The recomended card has 1 x DVI, 1 x HMDI, 1 x D-Sub. Can run 1 monitor on DVI and the other on HDMI with a DVI-HDMI adapter? Will there be any difference in quality? Thanks.

Yes you can and the quality will be the same on both.

It's a gaming Graphics card, if you don't game you can get much cheaper ones that'll do the same job.

THX...Does it mean I can run 3 monitors then?

displaying an extended desktop as one screen? No. You need 2 gpu's for that at least for nvidia.

Most cards have more than 2 outputs now but can't use more than 2 outputs at the same time.

You need to get a card which specifically states it can use more than 2 outputs is that is what you want to do (like AMD's Eyefinity)

Or get a 2nd card, as icow suggested.

Get an amd card because they are cheap and have eyefinity
