DVI-VGA HELP!

Okay So I needed some help with my setup. I have 2 dvi ports on my radeon 6870 and 1 hdmi port. I have one vga port on the back of my monitor, and 1 dvi port on the back of my monitor but no hdmi. I have only 1 vga cable and no dvi cable. So would it be worth it to get a adapter or do you think my video card will come with one. DVI-VGA :bounce:

  1. Just get a DVI cable for optimal performance with this config. Do not use a DVI/VGA adapter for optimal use.

  5. Best answer
    DVI-I slots support both DVI-A and DVI-D cables. There are no DVI-I cables. It's a name for a slot that merges both DVI-A and DVI-D.
