Hi! I recently purchased a nvidia 8400 gs pci-e card off ebay. Unfortunately, I didn't look at the description thoroughly. It's a dvi card, and I have a crt vga monitor. Can I use a dvi to vga adaptor so it will work with my setup? Any and all responses will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

As long as your videocard has the 4 small holes around the long spade terminal, you are good to go.
