Dual monitor problem with 7850


Active Member
Hi all,

I recently bought a Sapphire 7850 OC 2GB and am trying to get my two monitors working on it. The card has:

1x DVI-D
1x DVI-I
1x Displayport

I think the problem is my monitors are quite old, so are subsequently both VGA. I've got a few adapters, DVI-D to VGA, DVI-I to VGA and HDMI to DVI-D, but I can only get 1 monitor working in the DVI-D port. Am I going to need to buy a converter? Maybe an HDMI to VGA one or a Displayport to VGA? Do HDMI to VGA cables from ebay actually work?
