I just got 3 new monitors and they only have HDMI and VGA. I have conversions from DVI to VGA so my DVI monitors are working. But if I plug in my HDMI cable to my 3rd monitor it kicks out one of my DVI monitors. Is it possible to only use HDMI and both DVIs?

If so tell me how please!

I don't really want to spend the money for another adapter.

Your graphics card is capable of running 2 legacy connections (DVI, VGA and HDMI), after the first 2 connections you need to use a DisplayPort connection.  If a DisplayPort monitor is not available then you can use an Active DisplayPort Dongle.
