At work I use three lcd monitors, and would like to move to two at home. I am ready to purchase the monitors, but have a question. I have done some googling and am coming up with conflicting answers. This is the video card that I have:

Its not a very high end card, but it does text and photoshop well which is what I need it for. The problem is, is that it only has one vga port. In my dual monitor setup I will be using two monitors both run through vga. I know that if I use a splitter it will just stretch one big image. What if I plug one through the vga port, and a second through the dvi port using a DVI-VGA adapter? Will I get true dual monitors or just one stretched image?

Thank you in advance.
