Hey guys, I just recently installed my new ASUS Radeon 7750. Some info real quick, I have a http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en... (P7-1254) with two monitors. Both monitors have DVI and VGA, but no HDMI. So after I installed my new graphics card, there was only plug ins for DVI, HDMI, one other that I can't recall, but still not VGA. So in order to get both monitors to work, I plugged my DVI from one monitor into the new graphics card, and I plugged the other DVI from the second monitor into the older graphics card (the one that came equipped to the computer). The second monitor that was hooked up to the old graphics card doesn't work. Is there a reason for this? Thanks for any time taking to answer this, much appreciation.

Well you need to plug both monitors on the graphics card using a DVI to HDMI cable, and a DVI to DVI cable. This should resolve the issue.

According to Newegg this card has 1x HMDI, 1x DVI , 1x Display port. Just get a VDI to HMDI adapter and you're all set. Forget about the older card.

ok but, if I don't want to buy an adapter, is there a way that I can use both graphic cards for two different monitors?

Well an adapter should cost no more than a couple of bucks. It will make your life easier..
