If I remember from a previous post, that I can't find, it won't work. I'm still looking around, but I have a busy day today

:thumbsup: OK good link thanks ,from what I can gather from your link "If one or both connections are DVI-D, you need a DVI-D cable. " that is a good description of my situation and one ( monitor )is a DVI-D connector so apparently the DVI-D cable will connect to the video card DVI ( it has more holes than monitor cable has pins though ) no adapter needed unless you want a vga (I don't ).My new video card will be here today so I will cross my fingers ( will post the outcome later ). Thankx .bbulbb :huh:
