I think for the price it's worth a shot.

One of the reasons I've never been a fan of video adapters. Some cards hate them, and cables cost the same if not less.

I still think that eventhough you don't have 2 DVI outputs you will still need one of the monitors to be a digital monitor running off the DVI output(no adapters) and one standard VGA/ Analogue.
Correct me if i'm wrong but from what i have experienced or read that you cannot run 2 x VGA monitors.
Looking at the picture you provided i think the DVI output is a single link DVI output. So will only work with a DVI monitor. Or maybe if the monitor has a HDMI input then you may get away with using a DVI to HDMI cable/ Adapter.

My main monitor has an HDMI input, the second monitor, however, does not.

Ello jason.
If it was me i'd try running the HDMI monitor from the DVI output. Either with a HDMI to DVI cable or a HDMI to DVI adapter as a last resort. It still may not work though. Then run you second VGA monitor from the VGA output.

Well I've got a DVI cable coming in the mail any day now. If the DVI cable doesn't get things to work, I will definitely try the HDMI. Thank you for the suggestion.

What is the best setup for running dual monitors with dual video cards? Plug one monitor into one card and the other into the second card with Crossfire off, or turn on Crossfire and plug both monitors into the same video card? Both monitors are the same.
