OK, it's using the ati driver.

Hmm. The radeonhd driver supports this chip family (R600) better.

What?  This is an analog display but it's connected to DVI?  Are you
using a DVI-to-VGA adapter?

I find it weird that Xorg seems to be finding the monitor on both DVI-0

I'm not sure what this means, but in my experience it usually seems to
be because the driver can't find a suitable clock to use.

I'd delete the ati driver and try it with radeonhd myself.
