I was just looking longingly at a new 7600GT card that I've got ordered and will be arriving soon, when I notice that it only has 2 dvi slots and no d-sub...the last card I had only had d-sub so when I upgraded to a flat-panel monitor I got one with d-sub (dumb move i realize now) I'm looking at newegg and I cant find anything that will convert the dvi to d-sub....am I going to have to buy a new monitor to use this frikkin card? Any info appreciated thanks.
I'm looking online at converters...it looks like VGA is the same as D-SUB?? Is this right? So then a DVI to VGA adaptor might work...I just want to know I can use my new vid card....it's so shiny and pretty...please someone tell me it'll all be ok...
Well I picked up a VGA to DVI converter on my way home from work at Best Buy...all that panic was for nothing, it works fine in the previously unused DVI port (that I never even noticed was there) on my current, soon to be history graphics card. Now I can return to blissfully dreaming about the arrival of my 7600GT.
