my monitor is dell E1912H and it has only a vga connector.
I am going to buy Gigabyte GTX 660, but it has no vga port.
so how to connect ?
Will using a converter cause performance drop ?
which converter i should use ?
please help.

Only place where youd get performance drop is the monitor itself. Replace it with something more modern.

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.
