Okay, i have a (used) 8800gts so i didn't get any cables and i am using a crappy CRT Monitor with a native resolution of 1024x768, so would i need an adapter (DVI to VGA) or not. Many other video cards dont require you to plug them into the Monitor.
I ordered everything for my new computer and all will arrive tommorow. But, i don't have an adapter and am eager to play games MAXED OUT! Thanks!
Yes you will need an adapter because the video card only has dvi ports. If the
card was bought new it would have came with the adapters but you should be able to find one for cheap at your local electronics store.
