I am going to be hooking up dual monitors. I have a AMD Radeon 7850 it has one DVI output (Which I am using on my main monitor), a HDMI output, and two Mini
Display Ports. The monitor I am using is a low-budget 4:3 Dell monitor with one VGA input and one DVI input. This is my problem... Since I am using the DVI output on my
main monitor, I dont know if I can use a HDMI to DVI adapter cable to hook up my video card to my other monitor.... Please Help. Thank You

Yup HDMI to DVI adapters work just fine, I'd just go that route.

I also agree that the HDMI to DVI adapter will work just fine. There shouldn't be any issues at all.
And if you were wondering, yes you can have a different resolution on each monitor.
