Using what gfxchip? VGA0 I don't remember ever seeing. Most I remember seeing:

VGA	# Intel analog (old)
VGA1	# Intel analog
HDMI1	# Intel HDMI aka DVI
DP1	# Intel DisplayPort
VGA-1	# Nouveau analog
DVI0	# Nouveau & NV DVI
DVI-I-1	# Nouveau DVII multihead
DVI-I-2	# Nouveau DVII multihead
VGA-0	# Radeon analog
DVI-0	# Radeon DVI
