Need Help connecting 2 monitors

I just purchased an HP Envy Phoenix 800-050se Desktop and ( 2 ) HP Pavilion 23xi IPS LED Backlit Monitors.  What is the best way to connect both monitors to my computer and maintain resolution?  Could you recommend specific hardware to purchase?  Thanks.

From the Product Specifications you can have different graphic cards:

So it depends on your graphics ports what and how you can connect to this pc. You don't need specific hardware beside cables.

Check wikipedia for DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort and compare what your card offers:
