    I am trying to configure an HP business desktop, which adapter option should I choose for Graphics connectors?

    I have attached a screenshot of the available options.



    I want to connect the desktop to two external monitors (maybe three). At least one desktop will be 4k.

    Also should I choose certain graphics cards given that I will have multiple monitors?

    I would like at least 128GB of ram. Which desktop models would be good?

    Just get whatever cables you need to connect your monitors to the GPU. Buying them from Monoprice will be much cheaper than whatever ripoff prices HP is charging.

    Sorry, I'm clueless. I will buy two external monitors (maybe three), I do not know which. AT least one will be 4k. GPU: I need to figure out what to get.
    Is there a site which explains GPU-connectors-monitors?

    Start with the basics, what are you going to do with the desktop? It means, how powerful GPU will you need?
    There is a huge difference if you are going to display stock markets, video or similar on three screens, or run 3D games or 3D cad on three monitors.

    Once that is settled, you will know what display connectors your future card will have.
    Then you can look at the available monitors, once you know what monitors you are using then we will know what connectors those monitors have.

    Once all those are known, you can choose proper cable types (unless they come with monitors already) from your list.
