After much reading and trying to understand dual monitors and (being thankful I cannot afford dual monitors because it seems like a real headache) ...
According to the web and the manual the second DVI-Port on the card is a DVI-D connector and does not transfer Analog signals. You would need an active DVI-D to VGA adapter. To use the second DVI port on the card.
PS after reading all about this card it was making my eyes bleed I feel like I should buy one ... NOT ... LOL - seriously though you would think AMD would make this a lot easier but I guess they figure anyone with a dual display is going to buy either a new monitor with HDMI or one with a displayport. And not two older monitors with VGA only.

As YeahBleeping said the second DVI port does not carry an analog signal. Look at the DVI ports on monitor B and your video card and get the correct DVI cable. This will give you the digital signal that your video card supplies. I have no idea why the HDMI is not working properly for you. It should be as good or better that a DVI connection. Perhaps you need to calibrate the monitor.

Thanks DallasJack and YeahBleeping. I guess I'll have to see if I can buy that adapter piece or just a new graphics card (basic one).
