I have done quite a bit of searching but I can't find a clear answer. I am sure my 2011 Mac Mini will support Dual monitors but I just want to make sure I am doing it in the best way.

My first monitor is DVI. I have it attached to the Mac by the included HDMI -> DVI connector. My second monitor (which is in route) is HDMI, D-Sub, DVI-D (here is the monitor - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005BZNDS0/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

What is the best way to attach the second monitor? Should I get something like this HDMI -> thunderbolt adapter?

Or is there some other method I should try?

Thanks everyone.

Jake

That's all you need. It will even pass audio. You might also look for one on Monoprice. The usually have really good prices on cables.
