ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:

So here is my question. I have two of these:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824160061

I want to know if I could get this gpu:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202006

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=N82E16814150605

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.

  1. Get that 7950
    and
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236100

    DVI-D, HDMI 1.3 connections!!

    Oh sorry for the edit but your build looks excellent, it is refreshing to see an all AMD build btw!
  2. 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.
