@Coracao, welcome to the forum.

 

There is only a DVI-D and VGA port on the integrated video. Therefore, you would have to buy a video card that would support three monitors.  Once the video card is installed the integrated video is not available.  Newer video cards require UEFI in the motherboard instead of a Legacy/standard BIOS.  HP didn't begin using UEFI until mid-October, 2012.  Your BIOS can't be upgraded to UEFI.  Your best option is to choose a manufacturer and contact their Tech Support for help with choosing the best card for your needs.

 

Another option that you can consider is a USB 2.0 video adapter.  If this sounds like a good option, I suggest contacting StarTech's Tech Support for help.  I normally use their Chat Live option.  They have always been very helpful.
