How do I connect 2 monitors to 1 pc with only 1 HDMI port?

I would like to buy a second monitor, the same as the first one I bought, the Samsung S24D340. The problem is, my pc has one HDMI output. It does have a DisplayPort, a DVI-I and a DVI-D port too, but my monitor has an HDMI input and a VGA input.

Is there a way for me to create and extended desktop, so I can have two different programs run on two different monitors? For example Paint on the first one and Chrome on the other one? Should I buy a different second monitor or can my problem be solved by using a converter (I would like to have around the same resolution on both of the monitors)?

Either way, thanks for reading this, I hope you can help me :).
