DVI to VGA conversion on XFX 7850 (FX-785A-CNL4)

My primary display is an LG L224WS that I purchased years back. It has native resolution of 1680x1050 and only one VGA input.

Now, I want to buy an XFX Radeon 7850, and to be specific, this model:
http://shop.amd.com/us/Manufacturer/XFX/Detail/GraphicCard/FX-785A-CNL4

...since nothing else is currently available in my region (also, I was looking for a card that needs only one 6 pin PCI connector).

Now, with a DVI to VGA adapter, can I connect my current monitor? I know that all DVI ports do not support the conversion, but is the one in XFX FX-785A-CNL4 the DVI port that supports this conversion? And can I use resolutions like 1440x900 or 1280x800?

I'm making the purchase tomorrow, so any help will be much appreciated!

  1. Yes, yes, yes. The graphics card should come with a DVI-I to VGA converter as well.

    Looks like I have to override EDD to get the job done. But, it's working!
