yes thanks, I checked at the EVGA site and the card comes with a DVI-to-VGA adapter. It'll take some time for the card to reach me
The most interesting thing is one of my friends(the same monitor as mine) has successfully connected his using the DVI-D cable he got.
could be I got a faulty cable. Will have to figure that out too.Will simply get his cable and try. If not I'll ask for a replacement from the vendor.
Yes I have an i5-760(stock 2.8GHz) and 4GB of DDR3 1333.Hope that'll do for the card.
