  1. You need something like this that is linked here.

    It's a VGA to DVI adapter, which most GPU's come with in the box, so check your box if you have a dedicated GPU that you bought.
  2. good point. should have checked that before your right it does come with one. i just wanted to know if its compatable with this motherboard and graphics card.

  3. tis is the cable i used:

    i used to use an adaptor but it didn't let me push my PC all the way back (hence my graphics card DVI seocket nearly bent off).
  4. cable looks good probably go with that.
    BTW i like the narwhals.
