Any advice would be greatly appreciated, and if you Could be kind enough to link me to products in the uk More about : dual monitors 7950 BigMack70 January 10, 2013 11:34:17 AM HDMI to DVI + DVI to DVI would be the easiest way to do it... you should be able to pick up an HDMI--DVI adapter or cable for cheap online unksol a c 85 U Graphics card January 10, 2013 12:09:53 PM Or you could just plug then into the DVI ports with the DVI cables they came with.

You have dvi cables, you have dvi ports. Problem solved.

Every monitor I have bought came with vga and dvi. daretadakatsu January 10, 2013 12:57:25 PM Only vga cables came with these for some reason, and i should have probably said, i didnt know what dvi cable to get, as the out puts a different on my card noidea_77 a b U Graphics card January 10, 2013 1:32:07 PM What do you mean by different? You didn't mention the exact model of your card but on the pictures i found it looks like two identical dvi ports? daretadakatsu January 10, 2013 1:43:53 PM http://www.uwp.edu/departments/campus.technology/inform...
