Hello, I'm building a computer this holiday, and I have an old XFX Radeon 6870. It has two dvi outputs, an hdmi output, and 2 DP outputs. The only problem is that my monitor only has a vga input. To make it worse, the vga is built in so there is no way to change it. I was wondering if there was an adapter that I could use to connect my monitor to my graphics card. Also, would there be any fps drops, microstuttering, or frame skips?

Thanks is advance.:)

Yes there is! You can just go to the nearest tech store and ask for a DVI to VGA adapter, I am sure they have it. :)

k thanks. I may just get a new monitor if I can but I might just go for the adapter. Because the only problem is that my old monitor is 1024x768.....
