Default Radeon HD7850

Hi,

I am looking to upgrade my video card and was looking at the Radeon HD7850. I was looking at the HIS version but noticed it did not have the outputs I needed.

HIS Radeon HD 7850 IceQ X 2GB PCI-E w/ DVI, HDMI, Dual DP at Memory Express

I was wondering if there is a video card that you guys could recommend with similar specs, but can support VGA (Old second Monitor).

just buy a 2$ DVI to VGA adapter and you still have HDMI!

My video card is an HIS model and I've tried contacting their support numerous times to no avail. I don't think they speak any language besides Chinese either. So if you have a problem with the card don't expect an exchange or any help from their customer support!

Thanks for the responses. I also noticed that the video card supports only DVI-I. My monitor only supports DVI-D. Does that mean I would need two different adapters to connect both my monitors or can I use my DVI-D cable compatible with the DVI-I port of the graphics card?
