I have 2 monitors with VGA outs that i need to connect to my radeon hd 6950.

what are the compatible connections i can use to do so???

I have currently connected one monitor to the DVI-I port using a DVI to VGA adapter but cant seem to get the second monitor working using the DVI-D port on the graphic card.

There are also 2 mini-display ports and a HDMI port on the card.

Please suggest me the best solution for this.

thank you

No, just the right adapter.

Can you link to the two you tried?
