Dual Monitor support on ATI 5770

Hey guys, I know the card supports dual monitors or more actually. But I was wondering if anybody could tell me if it works across mediums. I currently have a 17inch 4:3 display as my monitor, its old and uses VGA technology. I was wondering if I got a new monitor, say a 20 inch widescreen that uses HDMI would I be able to do dual monitors? I had always thought so, but my friend bought a new card and he said something didn't work right when using only 1 hdmi monitor. I got a feeling the answer is yes it will work but if you guys could confirm it, that would be great before I go spend some money on a nice monitor.

My drive for two monitors by the way... I want to have the controls in Flight Simulator on the 4:3 screen whilst the flying view is on the 20 inch screen. Flight simulator on the one monitor kinda really sucks when you have to look away from the window to start your engines, or look at radar.

Thanks!

as long as the dvi ports are div-i (digital and analogue signal) you should be fine, if they are DVI-D or HDMI you won't run an analogue VGA device off of it.

Hmm, it doesn't say online, oh well. The monitor I got doesn't have HDMI it has DVI and VGA so Probably good anyways right?
