I just got a new monitor today at MicroCenter, the E211H Bb 21.5" Widescreen LCD for $100, which seemed like a good deal, and I just realized that it has only VGA input. It works perfectly fine with my current system, but I am planning on building a new system soon, and it seems that most video cards these days do not have VGA output, but rather have DVI or HDMI. So, should I get a different monitor or should I just get a VGA-DVI adapter?

If the monitor works fine for you then I would just get a VGA-DVI adapter, most Video cards come with such adapters now so you might not even have to buy one. :)
