That's why I should read the english product page and not the french one.
Thank you.

Sorry, I didn't see at the bottom you have two MiniDP-to-DVI-I Dual Link Acyive Adapater? If yes, you can try that active adapter --->DVI-VGA ADAPTER ----> VGA Monitor.

I also have two DVI-I (Dual Link) Adapters sitting on my desk.


So that means that I can't plug my second monitor with the adapter like I used to do with my old 4850x2 ?

Nope, I meant I have two adapters but with all the pins, in your scheme they are called DVI-I (Dual Link). They are passives ones.

So, as I can't find Any accell here in Belgium, is there different sort of active adapter ? Like, can I buy any "Mini Display Port to VGA Adapter" ? Or is there a trick to look after ?
I found that one :

On ebay, it says it's for Mac Book but I'm pretty sure there is no difference with the one in the link you gave me. Am I correct ?

No, don't buy that one. It doesn't work for my AMD cards. All my Apple adapters work with my MacBook but not with AMD cards. The best I could recommend is the one I link in previous post as it is validated by AMD.

There is not trick, MiniDP-VGA by Accell has a built-in DAC. I have to damage one of the Apple to see what is inside to tell the difference and will have to throw that $45 away lol

I believe you can buy one from eBay and shipped to Belgium.

Thank you.

I'll keep searching as on ebay I can't find anything under ~90$ shipped.

That would be better to buy a new monitor with native DisplayPort rather than paying for $90 + shipping cost.

Edit:

If you can find VGA-to-DVI-I adapter, give it another try, see if it will be able to power 2 displays from 2 DVI ports with that adapter.
