new graphics card problem

I used to have a 1080, which had a HDMI slot and a DVI slot, which was great for my Rift and my monitor.
I just upgraded my card and now have just one HDMI slot. Where do I put my monitor and VR headset?

    Are you sure there's only 1 HDMI and nothing else? Doesn't sound feasible to me. What card is it?

    Most current nvidia gpu's only come with 1x hdmi and 3x DisplayPorts.  I think there are a few rtx3080's that have dual hdmi. 

    If you need to use your hdmi for your Rift cv1 then you will need a DP capable monitor.  Pretty well most gaming monitors are DP these days, or like mine, do both.  I'm not sure but you may be able to get a DP/hdmi and/ore DP/DVI adapter but I'm not sure how well these work.  Good luck mate.
