ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:

So here is my question. I have two of these:

I want to know if I could get this gpu:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And have dvi to dvi on one monitor, and have a hdmi out to dvi cable to the other monitor because this card does not have dual dvi out. Should I only get a dual dvi out card which I have been looking at this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Also, any other opinions on what card to get would help alot. The max I would like to spend would be $300-325.

Thanks guys.

I already have the monitors without HDMI. I would have preferred having it, but I saw these AOC 1080p monitors at bestbuy for $110 a piece and I had to snatch them up. So would the 7950 work with two DVI/VGA monitors even though it has one Dvi connection and one HDMI connection?

Hello... there are HDMI adaptors to DVI... HDMI adds the benifit of sound to the DVI signals.
