    Your card has 2 HDMI + 1 DVI so no special adapters necessary.

    Just need 1 DVI to HDMI.

    There will be no issues driving 3 displays..
    But if you plan on playing games on a triple setup, not gonna happen.

    But yeah, you would just need one dport to HDMI converter. Now I recommend getting an amplified one, because if you just get a straight cable with no power it might cause some latency.

    Or as Agent said, DVI to HDMI.

    Or DVI to VGA even.

    You still need an active DP adapter because the TV does not support DP and will not be able to convert the signal.

    But you don't need DP.

    You have 2 HDMI and 1 DVI.
    HDMI and DVI have the same signal except one has audio.
