Connecting a third monitor

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Gaming - TG01-0030
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am trying to hook up a third monitor for work and the graphics card only has hdmi and dvi ports. I bought the computer from best buy thinking that it also had a vga port, but apparently that is integrated graphics and is disabled with a dedicated graphics card. Their website was rather misleading. What is the easiest and most reliable way to hook up the third monitor? Can i use USB-C or do i need an adapter to usb? The monitors must be extended and not duplicates. The monitor I'm hooking up has a vga and dvi port. Thank you for the help! Or would I be better off returning this computer and getting a different computer that has ports for all three monitors?

It has   NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1650 (4 GB GDDR5 dedicated) card which has HDMI 2.0b, DL-DVI-D ports wich in theory supports 3 monitors  but

 

>>> The monitors must be extended and not duplicates

Well, the best option is to return it and buy a different machine

I want The monitors to be extended. The graphics card only has two slots monitors, one DVR and one HDMI. How would I hook up a third monitor?
