Also from what i heard. The 6850 has a DVI-I port which support both analog and digital. And a DVI-D port which supports only Digital.

But is there a specific DVI-D to VGA adapter? Or is it possible that the DVI to VGA adapter i am using it a DVI-I adapter?

are u saying using 1 DVI-VGA works, but they cant work simultaneously ?


Yes. I have always been using the Main VGA screen connected to the DVI-I (First DVI slot on TOP) port

Yesterday, I bought another DVI-VGA adapter. I plug this VGA monitor into this adapter and plug it into the DVI-D(Second DVI slot BELOW)port
