No NVidia HDMI port on XPS 8700 (How do I connect to Monitor via HDMI?)

My XPS 8700 doesnt have a NVidia HDMI port. What  are my options to fix this if I want to connect to my monitor using an HDMI cable (without using adapters of course)? Is there a way to connect to my monitor via the HDMI port located in the middle left of the model? What is the latter HDMI port used for if it cant  connect to a tv/pc monitor?

I will assume your graphics card had a DVI-D connector.

I suggest a DVI-D to HDMI adapter. They are cheap and I've used them on several different systems. There is no signal loss at all since it keeps the signal all digital.

These are the last ones I bought on amazon. I'd post a link but it gets my reply put on hold for moderation. just grab the next line and paste it into google.
