HP Omen 25L Tower GT12-0197c
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So I just purchase this tower and to my surprise there was only one HDMI port! For a gaming PC you would think there would be more?

 

So my question is how do I hook up a second monitor to this tower easily?

@JokerJ87,

The trend is 1 HDMI and 2or 3 DP.  Read this article on multi DS monitors

"....DisplayPort has a few other useful features. First, it supports AMD's FreeSync and Nvidia's G-Sync, so you can have a tear-free gaming experience no matter which brand of card you use (as long as your monitor supports the technology, of course). 

You can also drive multiple monitors from one DisplayPort connection, rather than having to use multiple ports, which is handy".
