I am attempting to use two monitors, one has only VGA port and the other has a VGA and DVI port. Neither monitor has HDMI. Computer has one VGA output and one HDMI. Do I need a "converter" or will a cable that adapts HDMI to VGA work?
Since you can connect the monitor with the vga to vga that you have then you need a hdmi to dvi cable for the other , there are adaptors that are hdmi to dvi and you can plug in to a hdmi port and then plug in a dvi cable. Something like this would work.
Thanks guys for the quick responses. What I am trying to decide is whether I can just use a cable that takes me from HDMI to VGA or DVI OR whether I need a actual 'CONVERTER". The cables are cheap -- the converters are a bit more costly.
just get what ever cheaper, i would advise just cable if don't got other cable+adapter since they introduce extra connection witch is newer good,
dvi and hdmi is pretty much same technology with different plug no need for converter its just plug
