Monitor Connection Question Tags: Graphics Cards Monitors HD VGA Graphics Last response: January 19, 2013 8:59 PM in Graphics & Displays Share KingNothing666 January 19, 2013 8:45:52 PM I just bought a monitor to go with my recent pc build. It supports full HD resolution, and has a VGA and DVI-D Connection. I havent been able to try it out yet, but I have a question. The monitor only came with a VGA cable. I know one option will be to buy a DVI-D cable. However, I was wondering if a DVI to VGA adapter will work as well. My current setup is a GTX 660 with a VGA adapter(in the DVI-I slot) running to my old non-HD monitor. So my question is: If I hook up my new HD monitor in the same fashion(DVI to VGA), will I be able to run my new monitor in HD?

Cables are cheap too if you get them online. I have connected my monitors with VGA at 1080p in a pinch and it worked fine.
