you're better off just driving both displays with one GPU.
this is what I had originally hoped for, I just happened to have an additional monitor laying around but it was VGA only, with my main GPU being a 1070, having no form of analog output and the price of a converter being that of a cheap display adapter GPU I decided to try to go that route.

seems this is just exposing the limitations of desktop Linux, but whatever, live and learn

Does it not have a DVI-I port? If it has a DVI plug, and the wide flat pin has four smaller pins around it, then any $3 DVI to VGA adapter will work (the GPU should have come with one). But I guess it might not have that type of port.

I know what you're talking about, it is not one of those ports. it's a DVI-D port without those four smaller pins.
