  1. they normally come with a dvi - vga converter. no performance drop.
  2. Only place where youd get performance drop is the monitor itself. Replace it with something more modern.

    Does the GIGABYTE gtx 660 come with a dvi to vga converter ? or i have to buy it separately ?

    image quality is garbage with vga, its analogue. dvi, hdmi and displayport are all digital, get a new monitor.

    If it says they bundle it, then it comes with it. I know MSI cards usually comes with multiple video adapters (including VGA-DVI).

    Based on picture in Newegg (if that is where you're buying), doesn't seem like gigabyte includes adapter. If you're getting a Gigabyte card, you may have to buy a DVI-VGA adapter. They're pretty cheap.

    image quality is not much different at all if it is set up properly. he doesnt need a new monitor.

    bought gigabyte gtx 660 today and using a dvi to vga converter.
    but screen seems to be a bit hazy @1366x768
    so i had to switch on to 1360x768. now everything is quite readable.
    should i change my converter?
    i am using a non branded dual link dvi-i to vga converter
