Yes, as long as the monitors support at least one of those connections.

I thought so too until just now when I tried to connect two monitors using my inexpensive video card's two ports, one of which is DVI and the other VGA. Turns out, to my surprise, this video card refuses to send a video signal through both of its ports at same time. I've set up and run dual monitors in the past using this same configuration (i.e. one to VGA and the other to DVI) with inexpensive video cards and never encountered such a limitation. Well I guess it's off to the store to buy another video card. I still can only afford an inexpensive one. I'll just have ditch the assumption that 'more than one port' necessarily means 'more than single monitor' capable.

That GPU should run two monitors.
