Hello,I need some help here, I have a crossfire 6850 planning to get a dual monitor(I want the other one for extended desktop but not for gaming). When I plug in the monitors(both vga to dvi convertor) I only get one to work but not the other one which could not be detected.

Yea, both monitor are connected to the same card, I think they both support dvi but it comes with the vga cable. I will get a dvi cable to try it out.
One more question, can I get both monitor running on each card?
I have a 6850HD by Sapphire and another 6850HD one by Visiontek with Ati Catalyst Control Center 11.5v
Currently running on Windows 7 64 bit
As I mentioned earlier, only one DVI port on each of the HD6850s is the necessary DVI-I port capable of performing the analog conversion needed to use the VGA adapter. The other DVI port is DVI-D (digital) and it can't be used to convert an analog signal.
Going with DVI cables will take care of all of this. Good luck!
