Can I use a DP to HDMI AV Cable to set up dual monitors?

Hey guys I'm looking to start running dual monitors on my PC but on my graphics card there is only 1 HDMI slot whereas i need two.
On my Graphics card the only other slots i have is 1 DVI and 1 DP.
I have bought two of these monitors: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B008DCLQ8C/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
which only has 1 HDMI slot and 1 VGA slot.

From here I was wondering if i could use something like this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/280963106126?hlp=false#2
to connect the DP socket in my graphics card to my monitor.
Please let me know if this would work and if there would be any problems or post your other solutions.

all help would be appreciated as it's getting quite frustrating and i really want to get it all set up.
Thanks!
