Yes, you can install a video card and use the HDMI ports at the same time.  You can't use the video card and integrated video at the same time, however.

thank you for your response, so if I understand correctly.  I can install a video card and use two output on the video card plus the two hdmi outputs to connect 4 monitors and have a program up on each. however i cannot combine the power of the two and run one video games off both of them.  is this correct?  thank you, kindly.  Aaron

You are welcome.  Thank you for the additional information, @mastodan.

 

Q: however i cannot combine the power of the two and run one video games off both of them.  is this correct? 

 

A: The Integrated Video/Graphics comes as a part of the motherboard.  At this point, this is what you are using without a video card installed.  When the video card is installed you can't use Integrated Video.  However, you can use each of the HDMI ports.   I hope this explains it more thoroughly.
