HI. im trying to use 2 monitors and been doing some research. However, when I tried to look for "dvi to vga adapters" there seems to be a "male" and "female" versions. I have no idea what that is. Can someone kindly explain it to me? Thanks
Female connectors will usually be the ones on the I/O panel on your computer or on your graphics card. Male connectors are the ones that, erm, plug into the females (think human reproductive anatomy). As far as adapters go, let's say you have DVI out capability on your mobo/graphics card, and your monitor needs VGA. You'd want an adapter that was male DVI and female VGA in that case.
