As has been mentioned, the best option would be to replace your graphics card with one that can handle 2 monitors without using adapters, & these are not particularly expensive. Your system, even if it worked, would only be able to 'mirror' the monitors - show exactly the same on both, whereas the usual reason for needing two monitors is to be able to either extend the desktop to allow different things to be displayed.

What type of inputs are on both you monitors?

What type of outputs are on your tower?

Post the model number of your computer

It might be better to purchase a new graphics card with 2 or more outputs. If your video demands are not too high, they are not expensive. If your video demands are high, getting a better graphics card would have other advantages in improved productivity. Post your complete specs as per #1 above and your uses so we can help you better.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
