Dual VGA monitors -- how to connect them

So my question is; how to connect two monitors ( as extended desktop ) which both have only VGA port.

Graphica card that I'm using is Sapphire Radeon HD 6970

With those connections:

1.Single-link DVI-D connection
2.Mini DisplayPort (DP+) connection
3.Mini DisplayPort (DP+) connection
4.HDMI connection (Type A)
5.Dual-link DVI-I connection

One monitor is connected via VGA cabel with the VGA to DVI adapter at the end.
The problem is that I can't connect second monitor same as first one because only
one DVI port allows DVI 2 VGA dapter.

Will second monitor work if I use mini Display port to VGA adapter?

    Yes. It will work. I do the same in my Eyefinity Setup.
    To be sure with the miniDisplay port to VGA, choose from here:

    I already singled out a good option for you:

  2. THX a lot!

    BTW is there any cheaper option ?
  3. Yes it should work fine as long as you have the correct converter. I had a situation where I needed to go from DVI-D to VGA and KVMSwitchTech's ( Part # SCA-DVI-ANA) unit worked well for my application.

    Yes there are lot many cheap options available, but I insist you should better opt for a durable option rather than a cheap one.

    I guess there will be a lot of products that appear cheap. But it could be hit or miss too. I have experience about buying no name brands & they work but after a while they start flickering so I ended up buying another one. So better get it right the first time.
  6. Good to know, thank you
