That's the DVI port.

 

Edit: specifically, it's a DVI-I port, which includes the analog VGA output on the separate group of pins at the bottom.

That's the DVI port.

There appear to be many DVI ports. Which version is this in particular? DVI-A? DVI-D? DVI-I? Or something else?

which includes the analog VGA output on the separate group of pins at the bottom.

So could a VGA male cable plug into that thing and still work fine?

Also, my older topic about the malfunctioning graphics card/ram/power supply has an update. I actually know the exact specific moment in-game when the computer crashes. Please check that out.

With an adapter, or a DVI-I to DB15 analog cable, it can run a VGA monitor.
