Hi, I currently have two monitors on an MSI GTX760 Twin Frozr 4GB, using one DVI-I and one HDMI. I want to buy the same HDMI monitor to make a triple monitor setup, but my card doesn't have two HDMI, instead it has 1 x DisplayPort - I have no experience using DP so I was wondering if a HDMI to DP cable would work? or another route.

Any help is appreciated! Thanks.

Yup, works just fine. There are some caveats for certain AMD cards (you may need an 'active' adapter), but no such limitations from Nvidia. A standard DP to HDMI cable will do the job.

A standard DP to DVI cable will do the job too (assuming your monitor has a DVI input).

Thanks for the responses!
My monitor does have a DVI port as well, are there any advantages over DVI - DP / HDMI - DP, or is it just another option?
Thanks again

DVI-HDMI, except no audio and a different plug.

One thing to note if you are planning on gaming on a triple monitor setup a single GTX 760 will not do it. You will at the very least need to go SLI with a second GTX 760. But if you are going to be using the three monitors as extended monitors and game only on one you will be just fine.

then i think you can do setup like this without using DP
GPU <--> Monitors
DVI-D -> DVI
DVI-I -> DVI
HDMI -> HDMI
