I'm looking to have 2 monitors on this workstation.  The 2nd monitor I have only has VGA and HDMI ports so I'm looking to utilize the HDMI port as the VGA already goes to an older monitor.  Looking at buying the following:

HP Flex IO V2 Card - HDMI port

Having a mix of VGA and HDMI is an unusual way of having two displays to a PC. 

 

Two displays of the same type is the norm.

 

One is (HDMI)digital and the other (VGA)is analog. 

 

Your choice of analog (VGA) is interesting. 
May I ask why you use a VGA display?

 

What most people do is purchase and install a PCIe  video card that has two or more outputs of the type they want to connect to the displays.

Hi Erico,

Yes, ideally I'd have both the same monitors but - Retired, workstation was included in purchase of winter home and I just was gifted a new 24" monitor.  Workstation has standard VGA port which is tied to a 19" monitor (also came with home) . The workstation has VGA as well as a Digital output connector - what I was used to using when working in IT and using dual monitors.  New 24" does not have that type connector which is why I'm going HDMI since it's on the monitor.  Need to install board on HP workstation so both monitors will function.

Thanks for your input.

OK.

Thank you for clearing that question up.

The card you are looking at is marketed by HP as compatible with the following list of  Enterprise class desktop PCs. It probably will not fit in your Pavilion PC desktop's case.

Thanks Erico,

I thought about it further and reached conclusion that I think is best for my situation.  Ordered a 6' Digital to HDMI cable should solve the situation and give me dual monitors with minimal cost.

THANKS again for chiming in with information that was a good resource.

You're welcome, but there was no "chiming in".
