Trying to use the displayport
Is there a setting on the monitor or bios I need to change to use that?

Here is the cord I have:

I get a signal with the DVI-D - which I could go back to but was trying to upgrade to the displayport

You may have to start connected via DVI until you get the drivers for the Video card installed.

Got the latest driver installed

So I have 3 monitors and 2 video cards
The only monitor that has a picture is with the DVI-D.
My screen resolution shows 4 monitors.
I'm guessing the 3 from the datacables and one from the DVI.

The other 2 monitors have the orange light like there is no signal
I didn't see anything in the bios going to look at monitor settings now.

Yep it is a setting on the monitor, you have to select like a tv which one to use.
Now to see if I can get SLI working
