Yes, there should be no problems. 

 

There are adapters from DVI to HDMI or DisplayPort, or from HDMI to DVI or DisplayPort. You can combine. And the GPU supports dual monitors without issues.

I am not allowed to have my PC specs in my signature.

Yes, that should work.

 

You can adapt that DVI output to HDMI or DisplayPort, if that's what your monitor needs. You won't be able to adapt it to VGA with a passive cable though; you're missing the four analog outputs around the flat blade on the side of the connector. (It's DVI-D, not DVI-I.)

Dell owns my soul.

I want to connect to Monitor (HDMI PORT) and TV (HDMI PORT) 

 

So in short i just need to buy DVI-D (24+1pin) to HDMI right? If this works i will use DVI-D to HDMI on Monitor and HDMI on GPU i will use for TV. 

 

Will HDMI 5 Meter cable work for TV?

It would probably work, but you should try to keep it under 3 meters.

Agreed, or use a very good HDMI cable.
As signal deteriorates over length and not everything will work with the lesser quality long cables.
(I have had to buy another one as the first just didnt work. But we talking about 30+ Euro's for a 5 Meter cable).

When i ask for more specs, don't expect me to know the answer!
