GeForce gtx 660 dvi ports

Hi, I have a geforce gtx 660 twin frozr GPU, and I want to run dual monitors. Unfortunately, the two monitors i have only accept VGA. Theyre not the best, not the worst monitors, they do their job.

The 660 has two dvi ports. One is DVI-I, and one DVI-D (I think)



The thing is, the flat pin female is smaller on the dvi-D, then the dvi-i.

Is that supposed to be like that? And if so, will a proper DVI-D to vga adapter work? The GPU only came with one DVI-I to vga adapter :( 

Thanks for the help, I'd loved to be using dual monitors soon

DVI-D is only digital and would need an active adapter to transmit Analog. On DVI-I it is the 4 pins around the flat that carry the analog signal.

So im pretty much SOL until I spring for a monitor that has an HDMI port? that'll probably the the best way to do it I suppose.

Hi. So what would be the point to a DVI-D to VGA adapter, why do they exist? (I just bought one and am having the same issue... :heink:  )

DVI-D only carries digital and I do not know why they make adapters for that but if they do they have to be active (basically be able to recode) to work.
