Alright so I ordered all my parts and put my first PC together the other day. Then I go to hook up the monitor and realize that my monitor only has a vga port while the graphics card (9600 gso) is a dual link dvi port. So I am wondering if there is a cable or something capable of converting the vga into the dual link dvi. I have had a hard time searching for one online seeing as there are so many different types. I would really appreciate any help.

there should be a DVI to VGA that comes with the graphics card. but if there isn't you should be able to buy a converter, it shouldn't cost you that much.

Yeah there is a simple adapter that converts from dvi to vga...Check your box again, if not go to a local computer store
