Do you need a VGA cable for graphics card
Dec 22, 2011, 2:17 AM
hello ive recently purchased a graphics card online, a sapphire radeon 6770.
do i need a vga cable?
or can it run off the motherboard without it?
will i still see the graphics even though there is no vga cable running from graphics card to the monitor???????
ps yes i know the graphics card is dvi, but ther is an adapter that comes with it, if i actually need the vga cable

You need to, because if it's not you don't get graphics signal from the card.

You can use a DVI cable, or a HDMI/DisplayPort if you have them on the card... VGA isn't the only way.

is the dvi cable the cable that connects the monitor to the computer?
im sorry if thats a stupid question?
and if thats so, can i just switch the connection over to the graphics card rather that the computer?
