Connecting three monitors to Asus R9 280X

Hi Tomshardware

I currently have 2 Dell U2713HM monitors and am looking into buying a Benq BL2411PT for use in portrait mode.

There is a problem, however. My GPU has 4 connections:
DVI-D
DVI-I
HDMI
DisplayPort

My U2713HM monitors can only use DVI-D and DisplayPort (DVI-I is incompatible with them and HDMI only allows 1920x1080 instead of the native resolution), which means only the HDMI and DVI-I port are left to use.

The Benq monitor only seems to support VGA (lol), DVI-D and Displayport, so I'm sort of out of connectivity options... so...

How do I connect the Benq monitor to my GPU?

Would the above cable work if I used the HDMI port on the GPU and the DP port on the monitor? (website in Danish; it's not a virus site).

Thanks!

  1. You can use adapters. Like HDMI to VGA or whatever you need.
  2. So the cable I linked won't work?

    I'd prefer to use a cable without adapters, but if the cable isn't okay what about this then?
