The reference HD 5770 design didn't have a VGA port either and NOTHING has changed in terms of output connectivity on the newer cards.
For 3x VGA monitors, you still need to do the following:
Insert the following:
2x DVI to VGA adaptors
1x Passive DisplayPort to VGA adaptor
You CANNOT use a HDMI to VGA adaptor while using two DVI ports. This is due to the fact that DVI and HDMI both use the card's RAMDACs of which there are precisely....two.
Once this is done, you can go into the control panel, create an Eyefinity Group and go from there.
