XFX 6950 + CRT as a secondary monitor
I just bought the XFX 6950. So far so good, a very good upgrade from my 4890. However, i can't connect my CRT monitor to the secondary DVI output (besides the exhaust).

If i switch between my LCD and CRT monitor, DVI output 1 works. It both recognizes it. But if i put the LCD on the output 1 and the CRT on output 2 (or vice versa), extended desktop wont work.

I went to CCC and look for the secondary panel, it doesnt show up.

But if i go to my desktop and right click, i have to force it to connect by VGA. But yet, it still wont save the changes.

Does the card support VGA at all or no?

Only the main one next to the two mini display ports supports VGA and dual-link DVI.
If your LCD resolution is 1920x1200 or less, bump that to the bottom DVI slot and use the DVI->VGA converter on the top one. If you look at the pci slot bracket you can see an embossed "VGA" text.

Or you can buy a minidisplay port->VGA converter on amazon for $10

What a N00b mistake...
