Two Monitor Extended Display with one DVI port

I am going to purchase a new graphics card soon, however I see that many graphics cards only come with a single DVI port. I have two monitors and want it in extended display. So here are my questions:

1. Do some graphics cards come with HDMI to DVI converters, or any adapters that will allow me to hook up two monitors to it?

2. If I have to go get my own adapter, would the hdmi to dvi adapter be the best and cheapest option? I don't want to spend much money on this.

  1. Almost ALL gpus come with two DVI Ports except the super low end. If you need to use an adapter hdmi and single link dvi are the same basic signal, and a simple hdmi to DVI cable (or adapter) is your best choice
  2. I was looking at getting one of the two PowerColor 7870 LE cards or Sapphire 7870 XT but they seem to have a single DVI port. I think I will have to get an HDMI to dvi cable then.

  3. Better get a DisplayPort to DVI cable.
