Graphics Card

Hi

Just bought a new graphics card (ATI Radeon HD 5770) and it has 2 DL-DVI ports but i have no DL-DVI cable. If i plug my monitor into my motherboard will the card still work?

  1. No as that would be onboard graphics rather than the GPU, buy a DLDVI-VGA converter.
  2. Cheers :)
  3. Wait. What type of monitor do you have? You may just need a DVI to DVI cable, not an adapter. Using a VGA cable will force you to use an analog connection. If you are using a CRT monitor, that is fine. If you are using a LCD monitor and it supports DVI, using VGA/analog would not deliver the best graphics performance.
  4. I have a DVI port on my monitor.
  5. Ok, then get a DVI to DVI cable and you'll be set. Unless it is a 30-inch monitor, you likely don't need the dual-link version. Just your basic DVI to DVI will do it.
  6. Thank you :)
