Radeon HD 6450 capable of running two VGA monitors??

I am looking for a way to run two VGA monitors, hopefully without replacing the graphics card. Does anyone know what would be the best way to do this and hopefully save me a little money.. The card has VGA, DVI, and HDMI. Thanks

  1. I believe you would be able to use a DVI to VGA adapter to run 2 monitors. Im almost positive that it does support 2. The adapter looks like this:

  2. cards typically share the VGA signal between VGA port and the analog pins on the DVI-I port. you can't usually run more than one VGA monitor off a card without a display port to VGA adapter. doesn't hurt to try it though
  3. It should work but I haven't done it on a card that had one vga and only one dvi connector. You will need one adapter. A card with two dvi connectors will support two vga monitors via two adapters just fine.

    Again, this is not how it normally works. there has to be digital to analog circuitry to get the signal out on the DVI analog pins, and because of the extra components most manufacturers only provide analog out on one of the DVI ports. it can vary depending on the card/manufacturer/version though.
  5. Honestly these adapters are so cheap it doesnt really matter.

    He or she should just give it a try, I know it will work with cards that have two dvi connectors and done it for a few years till I upgraded from my old crt monitors.
