How to connect Dual Screens

Hi All,

I picked up two monitors over boxing week and i'm trying to connect them to my mac.
Monitor has an HDMI and VGA port

I have a 2005/6 Mac mini
1.83GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
2 GB 667MHz DDR2 RAM
Running OSX 10.6.8

4 USB Ports
1 DVI
Firewire 400

One monitors is connected via the DVI port
For the other monitor I picked up a USB to HDMI adapter,
INSIGNIA NS-PU37H-BK-C

However the adapter requires OSX
Catalina
Mojave
Sierra
Yosemite

And I don't have any of those and I don't think my mac can support any of those OS.

Using the configuration I have, how can I connect the 2nd monitor (as an extension to my first monitor) What tech would people have been using in the mid 2000's?

I have 10.6.8 - Mountain Lion and from what I read my mac mini due to its age and limitations cannot support later OS versions....so now what?
