Hi,

 

I impulsively bought two used monitors (ViewSonic VA2448m) to get a dual monitor setup for my desktop, but I realised I have no clue if that is achievable with my configuration!

 

I have a NVIDIA GK107 card (1 DVI-I DualLink and 1 DisplayPort). Monitors have DVI-D and VGA inputs. Can I use both monitors with that card, and what would be the best way to achieve it?

Yes you should be fine.  I'd pick up a DisplayPort to DVI adapter like this one and use two DVI cables to the screens.

You can also get a DP to VGA, but its a little nicer to stick to all-digital connections if possible.

Yep as above 2 cables:

 

 

 

1) DVI-D Male to DVI-D Male and 

 

2) DisplayPort to DVI-D converter Cable

 

 

 

Something like these 2 cables:
