What cables and adapters do I need for a dual monitor setup

I have a Sapphire HD 7750 low profile video card. For outputs it has...

DVI port
micro HDMI port
mini Display port

I have two monitors, each monitor has a VGA and a DVI-D input port. I would like to do a dual monitor setup. I don't want to clone the output, meaning that I don't want both monitors to show the same thing. Each monitor must work at a different resolution. So what cable do I need to do this? I use Linux mostly. Obviously I can connect a monitor to the DVI port, but what about the other two ports? I'm guessing I need an micro HDMI to HDMI cable and a HDMI to DVI adapter. Would that work? Thanks.

In the description it says micro HDMI. I'll post a link in my OP.

Indeed it does. The same cable is available in micro-HDMI to DVI:

You could also go with a mini DP to DVI:

Or you could get both and run three displays...
