Hello, first time builder, so please excuse any incompetence.
I am trying to build a gaming rig, and I will be using one LED 24'' 1080p Monitor as my primary monitor while also using an old 17'' fullscreen VGA monitor as well. I already have an HDMI and a VGA cable, but do I need to buy an adapter to connect to the VGA monitor, or will it normally come with it? The graphics cards I am looking at right now are the GTX 560 Ti, GTX 660 Ti, and Radeon HD 7870.
as you will see shopping, they are all different. even within models, we will use the 7870 the xfx 7870 (refrence model) has 2 dvi, 1 hdmi and two midi display ports,Sapphire 7870 has 2 dvi, 1 hdmi and 1 full size display port. some come with adapters like the saphire comes with a dvi to vga adapters and some low end cards do not. you should pick one according to youre needs.
