I am upgrading my video card which has a HDMI and DVI-I port according to the pin out on it, but a DVI to VGA adapter does not work, so I figure it has the DVI-I port, but it uses the DVI-d signal. I need to be able to use my two monitors as an extended desktop, is there a way to do this without buying like a converter or any other special hardware?

I was thinking, since all of our monitors we have use VGA connections, buying a DVI to dms-59 adapter, than plugging in the dms59 adapter that cane with the pc that has 2 VGA connections. Will that work how I am looking to set things up? The only reason I ask is because I have only been able to find a DVI to dms59(x2) adapters and I thought using that would split the signal too much?

I really need some help.
