  1. You need a DVI-I to VGA adapter or cable. DVI-D does not have the analog signal component that DVI-I does.
  2. I have a DVI-I to VGA converter and it works perfectly. As ko888 mentioned, DVI-D only does digital:
  3. hmm so Dvi-D cable no use ?

    VGA is comprised of an R, G, B analog signal and a horizontal sync and vertical sync digital signals.

    DVI-D is carries purely digital signals.

    DVI-I carries both analog and digital signal components.

    A DVI-I to VGA adapter passes the R, G, B and the Horizontal and Vertical Sync signal components of DVI-I to the VGA cable/monitor.
  6. oh then i gues the staffs in the stores are noobs and they say monitor is the problem and xfx didnt even give me converter and 8pin to 6pin converter . Now ill buy one and check.
