    It's really simple to convert DP to HDMI, so you probably got a bad cable. AFAIK all Nvidia cards are dual mode/multimode/DP++ so a passive adapter will work. You can't post links until you have enough posts here so your link did show, try putting spaces in the link so it's not seen as one by the forum sw. The cable should be $10-$20 or so.

    There should be no reason why a DP->HDMI adapter isn't working. Did you get one that supports the HDMI revision you're using? What model and resolution is your display?

    Also if you have 2 HDMI monitors you can hook one up via the HDMI port and the other via the DVI port (with a passive cable or adapter).

    Using DVI->HDMI is a cheaper and a more direct way to drive the second HDMI monitor as everything is done on the card (there's no active or passive components, only wires).
