@AdamWest , welcome to the forum.

 

Here is an adapter that you meet your needs:  https://www.startech.com/AV/display-and-video-adapters/USB-Video-Adapters/slim-usb-3-hdmi-adapter~US...

 

StarTech makes very good products.  They have adapters for all of the connectors that you mentioned.  I chose HDMI because it is most prevalent.

 

If you have questions about their products, I suggest using their Chat Live option.  I use it frequently and have found their Techs to be very helpful.

Two last questions, @Old_geekster ... 

 

Could I just use a  Dual-screen Y-cable for DVI or VGA ??

 

LIKE THIS ONE ??

 

IDK if the card will support 2 lanes on DVI or VGA ?? 

 

Also, how would I identify which USB port is 3.0 ??  

- To my knowledge there's only one 3.0 & the rest are 2.0?

 

Thank you again so very much !!!  🤗
