I would use the following connectors:
Primary display --> DP (use mini DP to DP connector the card comes with).
Secondary display--> DVI (use directly).
I know the card does not come with a DP cable, but I would buy one.
Now why would I not use HDMI?
It's becuase it is limited to 1920x1200 (unlike DP and DVI (dual link)).
DP and DVI are true Monitor standards. HDMI is HDTV standard.
The driver would detect and automatically select DP display as Primary and DVI display as secondary. Also, use DP port 1 (the one farthest from the MB with the card plugged in). Although if there is only one DP display, it does not matter. You can use either.
Having said that, there is no issue if you use HDMI provided the max you want to go is 1920x1200 for a single display.
