Is this the card in question?

Newegg.com - XFX Double D FX-795A-TDFC Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

You can use one of these for each of the VGA monitors.

Newegg.com - SYBA SY-ADA33012 Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter

Will the VGA's IMAGE QUALITY be Reduced?

I couldn't tell you. I never used a MiniDP to VGA.

FWIW, I have 2 monitors, one connected DVI and the other connected VGA. I can't tell the difference in image quality. Both monitors are at 1280x1024.

No you can't degrade VGA monitor quality by running it through a Dvi adaptor (is it even possible to degrade VGA quality)

Smile Re: Graphics Card Connectivity

Currently on my 5770 i have the two VGA monitors connected via DVI converters.

I don't trust adapters that arnt made by a brand, because usually they don't work.
But the only brand i can find is apple. And im not putting any money in there pockets.

Thanks for your help again OhSnapWord.
