Hello i want to connect a second monitor but gpu RTX2080 ,my CPU ryzen 2700x doesn't have integrated graphics.
The second monitor is an old one and has only vga port but i have a vga to hdmi cable adapter the problem is i dont have a second hdmi nor vga port on my GPU
Is there a way to connect a second monitor to my gpu?

You need a USB to VGA or USB to HDMI. Your current monitor is VGA only but if you plan a future purcahsee for one with HDMI then get that adapter. Just do an internet search for whichever adapter - lots of them available.

You then set up the dual display settings in your OS.

Yep, DP is absolutely preferable to the USB option. I never looked at the specs for the card to see what ports were available, just went by what you posted.
