I was gifted a new R7 260x (Gigabyte R726XOC-2GD Specifically). I use one central monitor that supports DVI, VGA, and HDMi, but also two others that are VGA only. I have VGA-DVI adapters to allow me to plug in those two others, but it seems that the 260x doesn't have VGA support. Am I wrong? Is there anything (short of buying new monitors or expensive active adapters) that I can do to run these monitors from this card?

I believe one of the DVI outs on the card will support a VGA Signal. But only 1. And thats assuming I'm right. So take a DVI > VGA connector and hook it up to the one of the VgA monitors and see if one of those DVI ports will put out a vga signal. 

Otherwise the answer is no.
