What you need is one of these DVI Converter. That will convert the DVI plug to VGA and from there you just set it up through the driver.

Also, you can pick up a seperate pci video card for one of the monitors. THis is often the route people take to avoid getting slower performance, but with your video card it probably isn't necissary. However, if you wanted a third monitor, that would be the route you'd have to take.

when you got your 9800pro even the OEM usually come with a dvi-vga adapter.
