Can I use DVI and DP if my GPU supports it and my Motherboard doesn't?

Probably a silly question but I need to know. There's a really good offer for a desktop pc with a Nvidia GTX 970 4GB graphics card. However, the build uses a very cheap motherboard (Asrock H81 Pro BTC, http://www.asrock.com/mb/intel/h81%20pro...

I want to be able to run three monitors if I buy this PC, but this motherboard has zero DVI-ports, nor does it have any DisplayPorts. It does have a single HDMI port but I believe I won't be able to run three monitors from that (correct me if I'm wrong).

The GPU has 2 DVI-ports, as well as a DisplayPort, and a HDMI-port, and is fully capable of running three monitors.

Is there a way to make use of the DVI and DP graphic outputs on the GPU even though the motherboard only supports HDMI?
