So I bought a 7770 GHz edition (XFX core) and it didn't come with one of those adapters. I know VGA is outdated, but my LCD monitor still uses it. Anyone else notice this?

Most computer shops have these laying around by the dozen. Analog video signals have been depreciated for the better part of a decade so I don't blame them for not including one.

I suppose I should just suck it up and buy a DVI cable or adapter. I just feel scammed.

If your monitor supports DVI-I/D then you should use that instead. The colour quality of VGA tends to degrade quite rapidly at higher resolutions. If your monitor supports only DVI-A/VGA then the adapter costs only a few dollars.
