Video card with all DP or HDMI outputs?

The customer wants to use three new monitors for the office computer, for typical office apps.  All it has on the motherboard is one VGA and one DisplayPort, so I wanted to get a video card that would support all three monitors using the HDMI and/or DP ports on the monitors--which is all they have, being large and new.  But every reasonably priced video card I look at has VGA, DP, and DVI--and of course VGA and DVI do me no good in this case.

Is there such a thing as a reasonably priced video card that has all DP and/or HDMI outputs?  Low profile would be even better.  Again, I'm not looking for hi-res graphics or gaming features.  Rather, I'm just trying to get access to three "modern" video ports for this PC.  

Or, should I buy three USB HDMI video adapter dongles--and expect that to look good and for Windows 7 to manage all three screens properly?  TIA

The Sapphire Radeon Pulse RX580 has 2 HDMI and 2 DisplayPort outputs and can handle up to 5 simultanous displays.

"Reasonably priced" ... well, only you can decide that.

Don't even need a splitter as you can daisy-chain displayport.
Display port can support more data, up to 4 HDMI video streams.  HDMI is more abundant, especially if you go to lower end monitors

A USB-C is going to be the next level up, although it's not as abundant right now.

Daisy-chaining requires DP1.2 and DP out connectors at the monitors concerned.
