Well, you'll have one monitor connected via the HDMI, and another via the VGA. If the monitor(s) you get don't have either of those connections, there are converters for what you need.

What kind of monitor's are you going to use in your set up?

You could use one of these to convert the HDMI on the video card to DVI if you don't use a monitor that has HDMI Newegg.com - Link Depot 7 FT HDMI TO DVI Cable Model HDMI-DVI-2 - Cables
